Obama in Mexico to meet with N. American leaders

Posted: Updated:
TOLUCA, Mexico (AP) - President Barack Obama is bringing his trade agenda to Mexico, where he is meeting with Mexican and Canadian leaders for three-way talks on mutual concerns.
Obama touched down Wednesday in this industrial center about 40 miles west of Mexico City for a North American Leaders Summit that comes on the 20th anniversary of the North American Free Trade Agreement.
Updating NAFTA will be a central topic of the discussions. The U.S. is seeking to enhance that trade deal with new labor and environmental standards through a Trans-Pacific Partnership being negotiated by the U.S., Mexico, Canada and nine other Pacific rim economies.
Obama was expected to have one-on-one talks with Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto and Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper before all three leaders met for a working lunch.
