WASHINGTON -- U.S. President Barack Obama will travel to Toluca, Mexico on Feb. 19 for a North American leaders summit, the White House said Monday.
The meeting will be hosted by Mexico's President Enrique Pena Nieto and will also include Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper.
White House spokesman Jay Carney said the talks would focus on “a range of issues important to the daily lives of all of North America's people, including economic competitiveness, entrepreneurship, trade and investment, and citizen security.”
The talks will mark the first visit by Obama to Mexico since relations between the neighbors were rattled by fugitive U.S. intelligence contractor Edward Snowden's allegations of U.S. spying against Mexican leaders.
