Obama: Special Relationship With U.K. Despite Brexit

  • Obama, Trudeau and Pena Nieto hold summit Wednesday in Ottawa
  • U.K. vote, U.S. presidential race weigh on pro-trade agenda

The shadow of Brexit and rising protectionist sentiment loom large as U.S. President Barack Obama meets his North American counterparts to bolster the world’s largest trading bloc.

Obama, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto hold the so-called Three Amigos summit Wednesday in Ottawa, with fallout from the U.K.’s vote last week to leave the European Union raising pressure to show confidence in their own alliance. The countries will vow to produce more clean power and cut methane emissions while strengthening economic ties.
