DENVER -- Attorneys general from five Western states are meeting with Mexico's new attorney general.

Colorado Attorney General John Suthers says his counterparts from California, Idaho, Nevada, and New Mexico will join him at Tuesday's meeting with Jesus Murillo Karam in Mexico City. They'll be talking about drug trafficking, human trafficking and judicial reform.

Suthers says the group has been providing training to Mexican investigators and prosecutors as the country shifts to a more public adversarial trial system.

Murillo Karam, a former governor of Hidalgo, was appointed as Mexico's attorney general in 2012 by Mexico's newly elected president, Enrique Pena Nieto.
