The U.S. and Canada will host a "high-level summit" on Wednesday about climate change, according to U.S. officials, who described it as the first diplomatic initiative for the Biden administration as it seeks to put the issue back at the top of the U.S. foreign policy agenda.
"U.S. leadership has been sorely missed over the past years" on climate change, Trudeau said, adding it was "nice when the Americans are not pulling out all references to climate change and instead adding them" into their joint statements after their meetings.
During Wednesday's summit, co-hosted by Biden's special envoy for climate John Kerry, Canada is expected to announce a commitment to boost its target to reduce its carbon emissions, the U.S. officials said, while the Biden administration plans to release the U.S. target by Biden's climate summit on Earth Day.
The move is a first diplomatic step for the Biden administration as Kerry urges greater action to tackle the "climate crisis" and begins reengaging countries, the United Nations and non-governmental organizations on the issue.
"We are absolutely, clearly, without question inside the decisive decade," Kerry said Friday. "It's what people will do in the next 10 years that matter."
