Biden will travel to Canada in March next year to meet Trudeau

Mexico City, 10 January. United States President Joe Biden informed Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau on Tuesday of his intention to visit Canada next March, the White House reported.

The two leaders met this Tuesday in Mexico City in a bilateral meeting on the sidelines of the North American Leaders’ Summit, which is being co-hosted by Mexican President Andrés Manuel López Obrador.

“During the meeting, the President stated that he looks forward to traveling to Canada in March of this year,” the White House said in a statement after the meeting.

In a meeting before the summit began, they discussed supply chains in North America, the immigration crisis, the environment, instability in Haiti, the Russian invasion of Ukraine and the attack on democracy in Brazil.

“President Biden and Prime Minister Trudeau discussed opportunities to strengthen supply chains for raw materials, electric vehicles and semiconductors,” the statement details.

The two leaders promised to coordinate in the UN Security Council on the next steps to be taken to address the security crisis faced by Haiti.

Biden also thanked Trudeau for the military, economic and humanitarian aid Canada has sent to Ukraine in the face of Russian aggression.

They agreed on the need to defend democracy in the US against attacks such as the one in Brazil on Sunday, when mobs of Bolsonarians stormed the country’s main institutions.

He also commented on the need to “expand legal channels” so that people from the continent can immigrate legally.

At the beginning of the meeting, Biden said that when the two countries work together “great things can be achieved”, stressing that America’s economic potential is “limitless”.

While Trudeau believed that Canadians, Americans and Mexicans could face the future with “optimism”.

After the meeting, the two accompanied López Obrador to Mexico’s National Palace for the X Summit of North American Leaders.

On the table are the regional immigration crisis, fentanyl smuggling and trade disputes opened by Washington and Ottawa against Mexico’s energy policy. efe
