Obama wecomes Canadian PM to White House

Fri 11 Mar 2016, 10:20:41
United States President Barack Obama welcomed Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau to the White House for the first such state visit in nearly two decades. During a ceremony yesterday, Mr Obama highlighted shared values noting universal health care, freedom of religion and the diversity in both nations.
The two leaders focused on fighting climate change, boosting trade and fighting the Islamic State terror group during talks in the Oval Office, before holding a news conference in the Rose Garden that centered mostly on the state of US politics in this presidential election year. 
Obama and Trudeau also announced greater cooperation on fighting climate change. Both leaders also vowed to implement last year's international climate control pact that was agreed to in Paris and to sign it as soon as it is feasible. Trudeau's White House visit marks an end to recent, occasionally frosty relations between Washington and Ottawa.
