WASHINGTON:.US President Joe Biden on Tuesday (Feb 23) will hold his first bilateral meeting with Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, which will highlight the strong and deep partnership between the two neighbors, the White House said on Saturday.

“The meeting 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,” White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki said in a statement.

While Biden has had at-times lengthy calls with several foreign leaders, the meeting with Trudeau will also extend to lower-level meetings between Cabinet ministers.

The event will be virtual. Biden and his Cabinet will also meet virtually with Canada’s ministers on a range of bilateral and global issues, Psaki added.
