White House: President Biden Will host US-Canada-Mexico Summit on November 18
On November 18, US President Joe Biden will be hosting President Andrés Manuel López Obrador of Mexico and Prime Minister Justin Trudeau of Canada at the White House for the first North American Leaders’ Summit (NALS), the White House statement asserted.
During the Summit, the three nations will reaffirm their solid ties and integration while at the same time graphing a new way for equitable and competitive growth, ending the pandemic and propelling health security; a regional foresight for migration and climate change issues, the White House statement said.
It is the first time since 2016 that the North American Leaders’ Summit has been convened. During former President Donald Trump’s administration, no official summit took place.
The Summit comes soon after the US started easing limitations on travel for completely immunized visitors from Mexico and Canada, loosening up restrictions that have been set up for over 18 months.
the White House statement read, “Reinforcing our partnership is vital for our potential to strengthen back better, to renew our leadership, and to react to an augmenting scope of global and regional challenges.”
“With immense respect for each other’s sovereignty and in a genuine spirit of our partnership, we pronounce our steady vision that North America is the most dynamic and competitive region on the planet, it added.”
The US-Mexico border has additionally been confronting an exodus of migrants that has inundated resources. This has produced some concern among US Customs and Border Protection authorities about relaxing travel limitations on the US southern border while mounting personnel to help check the rising migrants.
Since the outbreak of the coronavirus pandemic, the US has been restricting unnecessary travel along the Canada and Mexico borders. The government has been widening these travel restrictions every month.
However, lawmakers and border administrators profoundly examined these travel bans, urging the Biden presidency to modify limits to meet the evolving landscape.
