Trudeau, Biden discuss COVID-19, climate, Keystone XL

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau (pictured) expressed his "disappointment" with United States President Joe Biden's executive order to rescind the permit for the pipeline expansion, his office said.

During the phone call with the new US president, Trudeau "underscored the important economic and energy security benefits of our bilateral energy relationship as well as his support for energy workers."

Additionally, the two leaders discussed working together to tackle the COVID-19 pandemic, climate change, and reaffirmed their "commitment to multilateral institutions and alliances." They agreed to meet next month.
