López Obrador confirms January visits from Biden and Trudeau

Mexico City, Mexico — President Andrés Manuel López Obrador has confirmed a visit from both Joe Biden and Justin Trudeau in January. On Friday, López Obrador confirmed that in early January of 2023, his U.S. counterpart Joseph Biden, will visit Mexico to participate in the North American Leaders Summit in Mexico City as well as in bilateral meetings.

He announced that he will also hold meetings with representatives of the Canadian government, headed by Prime Minister Justin Trudeau. During talks, he will seek to strengthen cooperation between the three countries.

“It is being considered that there be a bilateral meeting first. It could be with the United States, which are the ones that are requesting this meeting, then it is certain that there will be another bilateral with Canada and then the Summit,” he said at his Friday morning press conference.

He also said that the U.S. Air Force One, the U.S. Presidential plane, will land at the Felipe Ángeles International Airport (AIFA).

“The Mexico City Airport has capacity, but now the heads of state, presidents, are choosing to arrive at the Felipe Ángeles Airport,” he said. An exact date for the visits has not been set.
