WASHINGTON (AP) – President Obama is convening a summit with leaders from Mexico and Canada to grapple with pressing issues of trade and energy.

The session at the White House is a make-good for a planned meeting last November in Hawaii on the sidelines of the Asia-Pacific summit. Obama ended up meeting just with Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper when Mexican President Felipe Calderon’s top deputy was killed in a helicopter crash.

In an Oval Office session, the White House says the three leaders will discuss issues of growth and competitiveness, citizen security and global warming _ as well as the agenda for the next summit on the docket, the hemispherewide Summit of the Americas later this month in Cartagena, Colombia.
