North American Leaders Hail Ties But Fail To Resolve Tensions



Staff | Aljazeera

The leaders of the United States, Canada and Mexico have hailed their reinvigorated partnership after their first summit in five years, but nagging tensions over trade and immigration remained largely unresolved.

The so-called “Three Amigos” meeting in Washington, DC on Thursday was the first of its kind since 2016, after being discontinued when Donald Trump took over as president.

“Together as North America we stand strong, and look to better build back our communities, our infrastructure, and our shared future as integrated partners,” US President Joe Biden, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, and Mexican President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador said in a joint statement after the summit.

They agreed to meet again next year, this time in Mexico.
