Biden to talk with Mexico’s AMLO to discuss migration, Ukraine

United States President Joe Biden was set to hold a phone call with his Mexican counterpart Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador, as the US prepares to deal with a surge in migration at the US southern border, triggered by the lifting of a COVID-era immigration restriction.

The White House has said that the two leaders on Friday “plan to discuss cooperation on migration, joint development efforts in Central America, competitiveness and economic growth, security, energy, and economic cooperation”.

The leaders will also talk about the upcoming Summit of the Americas, which the US will host in Los Angeles in June and convenes leaders from North, South and Central America and the Caribbean.

“I look forward to discussing our vision for the Ninth Summit of the Americas and discussing North America priority initiatives for the region,” Biden tweeted ahead of the conversation.
