    The United States, Canada and Mexico agreed to establish the North American Caucus.

    WASHINGTON (Sputnik) — The United States, Canada and Mexico agreed to establish the North American Caucus to facilitate more regular meetings among the leaders of the three nations, US President Barack Obama said on Wednesday.

    "We are creating what we call the North American Caucus, which means our three governments will meet on a more regular basis… and in short, we are going to do more to speak with one united North American voice on the world stage," Obama said during a press conference at the north American Leaders’ Summit in Ottawa, Canada.

    Earlier on Wednesday, the White House reported that the new caucus will hold semi-annual ministerial level meetings to address regional and global issues.
