MEXICO CITY Dec 1 Mexico's Central Bank
Governor Agustin Carstens said on Thursday that his decision to
resign should not be interpreted as a reaction to a supposed
conflict with the finance ministry.
"In no way should my departure be read as a reaction...to a
supposed conflict with the finance ministry or with the federal
government," he told a news conference.
In addition, in response to a question about whether he was
jumping ship in the middle of the storm, a reference to the
election of Donald Trump, he said he will still be around for
seven more months.
"I hope the storm does not last that long," he said.
