MEXICO CITY Oct 31 (Reuters) - Mexico's central bank kept interest rates on hold on Friday and argued that a recent spike in inflation would quickly fade next year even as the economy mounts a modest recovery.

The Banco de Mexico maintained its benchmark interest rate at a record low of 3.00 percent, as expected by 15 of 16 analysts polled by Reuters. (Reporting By Alexandra Alper and Michael O'Boyle)
