Joe Biden confirmed his visit to Mexico to participate in the North American Leaders Summit to be held in December 2022. The information was shared by President Andrés Manuel López Obrador (AMLO), who held a call with U.S. President Joe Biden on October 18.
From his Twitter account, President AMLO detailed that the call with Joe Biden was held in a cordial tone and also addressed issues regarding migration, security, and cooperation for development. "He confirmed that he will visit Mexico to participate in the North American Summit," concluded AMLO's publication.
AMLO also attached a photograph in which he can be seen smiling accompanied by the head of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (SRE), Marcelo Ebrard. Joe Biden's visit to Mexico is in addition to that of the Prime Minister of Canada, Justin Trudeau, in December 2022, on the occasion of the North American Leaders' Summit.
This would be the first time Joe Biden visits Mexico since he took office as President of the United States on January 20, 2021. AMLO and Joe Biden have only met once since both took office as the nation's president. The meeting took place in Washington D.C., the capital of the United States, in July 2022.
During his morning press conference, AMLO announced that he would hold a phone call with his U.S. counterpart, Joe Biden after the White House contacted Foreign Minister Marcelo Ebrard. "Relations with the US government are very good and we do not want a fight", said AMLO when questioned during his morning conference about Mexico's energy policy within the framework of the Treaty between Mexico, the United States, and Canada (T-MEC).
