Obama To Meet With Harper, Calderon At White House Summit

U.S. President Barack Obama will meet with Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper and Mexican President Felipe Calderon on Monday as part of a North American Leaders' Summit.

The White House said that the meeting will build on the wide-ranging and ongoing cooperation among the U.S., Canada, and Mexico.

The meeting will have a particular focus on economic growth and competitiveness, citizen security, energy, and climate change, the White House said.

Ahead of the Summit of the Americas in Colombia later in April, the leaders will also discuss North America's role in the Americas as well as other global economic, political, and security issues.

Obama, Harper, and Calderon will hold a joint press conference in the White House Rose Garden later in the afternoon.

Later in the day, President Obama and Vice President Joe Biden are scheduled to hold a meeting with Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.
