MEXICO CITY — Finance ministers and central bank governors from the world’s leading economies met in Mexico on Sunday amid growing fears over the global impact of Europe’s debt crisis and the stalemate over a fiscal plan in the United States.

Although recent financial talks have focused on the debt crisis in Europe, especially in Greece and Spain, some delegates in Mexico expressed concern over the fiscal situation in Washington.

Mexican finance minister Jose Antonio Meade said that among the issues dealt with at this meeting will be “the fiscal cliff” in the United States, where a package of spending cuts and tax increases are set to take effect unless Congress acts by Jan. 1.
