MEXICO CITY (Reuters) - Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto said on Monday that canceling a partially-built new airport for Mexico City would probably mean having to prepay the bonds issued to finance it, which would require extra funds.

Speaking at an event in the capital, Pena Nieto said that he would not suspend the current project during the rest of his term, which runs through end-November.
