Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is scheduled to hold a bilateral meeting with U.S. President Joe Biden on Tuesday, his office said in a statement.
The meeting that will be conducted virtually will be the first between the two leaders since Biden took office last month.
"During the meeting, Prime Minister Trudeau and President Biden will advance shared priorities, and work together to end the global COVID-19 pandemic," said part of the statement. "They will discuss their shared vision for a strong economic recovery, growing the middle class and creating jobs, maintaining strong supply chains, climate change, our bilateral energy relationship, defence and security, and promoting diversity and inclusion."
Trudeau said the Canada and the U.S. "share one of the strongest and deepest friendships between any two countries in the world. It is built on common values, strong ties between our people, and a shared geography."
