The leaders of the two countries met in Mexico City on the sidelines of the North American Leaders’ Summit to, among other things, resolve regional and global issues, including Russia’s war against Ukraine.
US President Joe Biden and Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said they are ready to continue to uphold the countries’ common values and will continue to support Ukraine in its fight against Russian aggression. On Tuesday, January 10, the White House said in a statement following the meeting of the two leaders in Mexico.
“President Biden and Prime Minister Trudeau discussed defense and security cooperation to meet the challenges of the 21st century, promote collective security and prosperity, and promote the rules-based international system. They reaffirmed the their commitment to promoting common values around the world, including the support of the people of Ukraine, who are defending themselves against Russia’s brutal aggression,” the statement said.
President Biden thanked Prime Minister Trudeau for Canada’s cooperation in providing security, economic and humanitarian assistance to Ukraine, and for economic and humanitarian assistance to Kyiv during the war.
Recall that the Government of Canada plans to allocate funds for the purchase of the NASAMS air defense system from the United States for the needs of the Ukrainian Defense Forces.
As we previously reported, the United States plans to transfer equipment to Ukraine to create a “smart bomb” as part of the next military aid package.
