Media Briefing: Obama, Harper, Peña Nieto at the North American Leaders Summit

There will be a full agenda for President Obama, Prime Minister Stephen Harper and President Enrique Peña Nieto as they convene in Toluca for the North American Leaders Summit on February 19th, 2014. Security and Energy may feature among the topics discussed given projects such as the Keystone XL pipeline and the rise of armed citizen groups in Mexico's central state of Michoacan, but other issues like the environment, immigration, and economic integration may also be touched upon. With these issues in mind, experts on U.S.-Mexico and U.S.-Canada relations held a conference call to preview the summit and answer questions from the media. 

We will be posting a full transcript of the call when it becomes available.
