PLAYA DEL CARMEN, Mexico (AP) -- Haitian President Rene Preval is in Mexico's resort-studded Caribbean coast for a meeting of leaders from the Caribbean economic trade bloc and the Mexican government.

Preval will also attend the Unity Summit of Latin American and Caribbean nations convened by the Rio Group starting Monday. Aid for Haiti in the wake of the devastating Jan. 12 earthquake is expected to be discussed.

Preval arrived Sunday aboard a Mexican government plane and thanked Mexico for all the aid it has sent to his country since the quake that killed more than 200,000 people and reduced much of the capital of Port-au-Prince to rubble.

"I want to thank the Mexican people with all my heart," Preval said.
