Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau touched down in Mexico City on Thursday (October 12) for an official visit amidst talks in Washington to renegotiate NAFTA.

US President Donald Trump has threatened to scrap the 1994 pact unless changes are made to address issues such as a $64 billion deficit with Mexico. He has also expressed his willingness for a free trade deal with Canada that does not include Mexico, should renegotiations failed.

Trade is set to be high on the agenda when Trudeau meets President Enrique Pena Nieto. But on day one of his Mexico City itinerary, the Trudeaus attended a military ceremony at an independence monument in Chapultepec park.

Next, Prime Minister Trudeau helped packed supplies for victims of Mexico’s deadly 7.1-magnitude quake, which killed over 330 people across the country.

Trudeau is expected to have dinner with Pena Nieto later on Thursday before flying out Friday (October 13).
