President Biden will meet virtually with Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau on Tuesday, in his first bilateral meeting as president.
The White House said Saturday that the session will be “an opportunity for the two leaders to review joint efforts in areas of mutual interest such as the Covid-19 response, climate change, and the economic ties that bind our countries, as well as the deep people-to-people bonds we share.”
In a tweet, Mr. Biden said: “I look forward to renewing the strong friendship between the United States and Canada and working to tackle the shared challenges we face.”
Mr. Trudeau said Saturday that Canada and the U.S. “share one of the strongest and deepest friendships between any two countries in the world.”
“I look forward to my meeting with President Biden,” he said. “We will work together to end the Covid-19 pandemic and support people in both our countries.”
