President Joe Biden’s first call to a foreign leader will be to Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, - with the fate of the controversial Keystone XL pipeline on the agenda.
Axar.az reports citing foreign media that White House spokeswoman Jen Psaki said on Wednesday
“His first foreign leader call will be on Friday with Prime Minister Trudeau,” Psaki told reporters at her first White House briefing.
She said they would discuss their “important relationship,” and the Biden administration’s decision to halt further construction of the Keystone XL oil pipeline between Canada and the United States.
Trudeau said he was “disappointed” by the move, which came shortly after Biden took office.
“While we welcome the president’s commitment to fighting climate change, we are disappointed but acknowledge the President’s decision to fulfil his election campaign promise on Keystone XL,” Trudeau said in a statement.
