Gov. Jon Huntsman Jr. will send a letter of invitation to Mexico President Vicente Fox, who has initial plans to visit the state this summer, said Mexican Consul Salvador Jimenez.

"I feel his support, I feel his enthusiasm," Jimenez said of the governor, following his first official meeting with Huntsman on Monday.

Jimenez said the letter would help Fox secure the Mexican Congress' permission for the visit to Salt Lake City, which is required by his nation's constitution.

The planned visit, announced in December, would be the first visit to Utah by a president of Mexico.
