OTTAWA – U.S. President Barack Obama says he will address Parliament during an upcoming visit to Canada that will coincide with a North American summit meeting later this year.

Obama made the remarks during a joint news conference in Washington following a meeting with visiting Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.

The visit will be part of a so-called Three Amigos summit meeting to take place in June between Trudeau, Obama and Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto.

Additional details were not immediately available.

During their meeting, the two leaders discussed plans for deals to co-operate on climate change, the Arctic and the shared Canada-U.S. border.

They have agreed to new steps to curb methane gas emissions; co-ordinate with aboriginal peoples in Arctic development; and support cleaner energy.
