President-elect to meet Obama five days before inauguration

November 23, 2012

Mexico’s President-elect Enrique Peña Nieto will meet with U.S. President Barack Obama at the White House on Tuesday, November 27.

With Peña Nieto due to begin his six-year term on Saturday, December 1 and Obama having just been re-elected for four more years, the pair will look to form a constructive partnership in the coming years.

“They plan to discuss a broad range of bilateral, regional and global issues during their Oval Office meeting,” said a White House statement. These issues will likely include immigration, trade and the war on drugs.

“The United States remains committed to work in partnership with Mexico to increase economic competitiveness in both countries, promote regional development, advance bilateral efforts to develop a secure and efficient 21st Century Border, and address our common security challenges,” continued the White House statement.

Following his meeting with Obama, Peña Nieto will fly to Canada on November 28 for talks with Prime Minister Stephen Harper.
