Mexican President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador said Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau accepted his invitation to visit Mexico during a phone call between the two leaders on Monday morning.
Their discussion also touched on the United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA) trade deal that went into effect last week, efforts to fight the coronavirus pandemic, and investment in renewable energy infrastructure.
Justin Trudeau emphasized the issue of Canadian investment in clean, renewable energies, and that was when AMLO told him that it is best for the Prime Minister of Canada to visit Mexico, so they can talk in person about the subject.
The two leaders expressed interest in meeting in person, Trudeau’s office said, without providing further detail.
Lopez Obrador said Trudeau was invited to Mexico, and after their call announced that the Canadian prime minister had agreed to visit the country “as soon as possible”.
Lopez Obrador said he will undergo a coronavirus test before leaving Mexico on Tuesday, July 7, and was prepared to have another in the US if necessary.
Lopez Obrador said he plans to return to Mexico from Washington, DC on Thursday, July 9.
