Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton will travel to Canada to participate in the North American Foreign Ministers Meeting on December 13, 2010, in Wakefield, Quebec.

The North American Foreign Ministers Meeting is an important forum for identifying trilateral priorities and ways the United States, Canada, and Mexico can collaborate as partners in North America, the western hemisphere and internationally.

In the trilateral sessions, Secretary Clinton, Minister Cannon, and Secretary Espinosa will discuss key issues that Canada, the United States, and Mexico face individually and as a region, including the state of the economy and North American prosperity, regional security, energy and climate change, the health and safety of citizens, and matters concerning the broader western hemisphere.

The United States, Mexico, and Canada share many opportunities and challenges and work collaboratively on a wide range of issues. The North American Foreign Ministers Meeting is an opportunity to reinforce the close relations among the three nations and to identify common objectives and strategies to ensure greater security and well-being, as well as economic prosperity, for the citizens of North America and the people of the western hemisphere.

    A major topic for today’s meetings was the condition of Haiti. Very likely that the cholera epidemic ravaging Haiti was brought in by UN peacekeepers. The strain is identical to South Asian strain. Peacekeepers are Nepalese. The strain is not same as the one found in other Latin American countries. Haiti has not had cholera in many decades.

    Also thought-provoking is the pressure exerted by the int’l community for Haiti’s government to hold elections after the cholera epidemic had begun. Now, of course, everyone is saying the election results are fraudulent. Then, why did you insist on having the elections when the country was so clearly unprepared for them?
