MEXICO CITY – President Enrique Peña Nieto and Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper discussed bilateral issues in Mexico City on Tuesday.

High on the agenda for the leaders’ meeting was the elimination of the visa requirement for Mexicans to enter Canada.

Peña Nieto said that Harper was open to the idea, and that the two would “continue to dialogue and find the formula and mechanisms that allow for the elimination of the visa that has been imposed on Mexicans visiting Canada.”

He said that the subject was approached with the “understanding of the reasons that prompted the decision, and also being open to dialogue that allows us to overcome this issue and have a much a much more fluid transit (between the two countries).”
