Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is due to touch down in Mexico City on Monday afternoon for a “Tres Amigos” summit with Joe Biden and Andre Manuel Lopez Obrador to be held Tuesday. 

Even before they began their meeting, the three leaders issued a joint statement condemning the violence that took place in the Brazilian capital of Brasilia, during which thousands of pro-Bolsonaro supporters invaded and vandalized the buildings of the government.

“We stand in solidarity with Brazil as it tries to protect its democratic institutions. Our governments support the free will of the Brazilian people. We look forward to working hand in hand with President Lula to achieve results for our countries, the Western Hemisphere and the rest of the world”, briefly stated the “tres amigos” in their short missive.

MM Trudeau and Biden will be received at an official dinner hosted by their Mexican colleague on Monday evening.
