Ebrard confirms meeting between AMLO, Joe Biden and Justin Trudeau on November 18

The leaders of Canada, the United States and Mexico will meet on November 18 at a summit in Washington, Mexican Foreign Minister Marcelo Ebrard confirmed this Wednesday morning.

On November 18, the ninth North American Leaders Summit will be held between Mexico, the United States and Canada. It will be the first face-to-face meeting of the president Lopez Obrador with Joe Biden and Justin Trudeau, advanced the Secretary of Foreign Relations.

Ebrard specified that the meeting between the three leaders will last two hours.

Joe Biden has held virtual meetings with the Mexican president, Andrés Manuel López Obrador, and the Canadian Prime Minister, Justin trudeau, since he took office this year. The in-person summit coincides with political tensions over energy, trade and immigration.

The leaders of the three countries began celebrating what is informally known as the Three Friends summit in 2005 and met most of the years until 2016. The practice ended when the former president Donald Trump took office in January 2017.

The three countries are bound by the United States-Mexico-Canada free trade agreement (T-MEC) that governs about $ 1.5 trillion of trade in North America a year.
