NEW YORK — Former Mexican President Carlos Salinas de Gortari denied Tuesday that he had been sent into exile, the New York Times reported today.
Salinas said he plans to spend the foreseeable future traveling in the United States and elsewhere and giving speeches. His wife and children, he said, are in Mexico City.
"Can I return to Mexico?" Salinas asked. "At any moment! Yes!" Then he added, "But I don't have plans now to do so."
