The Mexican president Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador said today that the American president Joe Biden will visit Mexico in early January as part of the North American Leaders Summit, which was previously planned for December.

López Obrador announced Biden's visit at a news conference as his government tries to resolve major disagreements over Mexico's energy policy with the United States and Canada.

López Obrador said that the bilateral meeting with the Canadian Prime Minister is likely Justin Trudeau and the meeting of the three leaders will follow his meeting with Biden.

The US-Mexico-Canada trade agreement (USMCA) is expected to be discussed in the talks between the country's leaders, among other things. In July, Washington and Ottawa demanded that López Obrador's energy policy be discussed under the USMCA, arguing that it discriminates against American and Canadian firms.
