    US President Donald Trump and Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said Washington and Ottawa would together work to modernize and broaden defense partnership in North America.

    WASHINGTON (Sputnik) — The United States and Canada are committed to strengthening the defense partnership in North America and expand it to other areas, including cyber-activities and space, a joint statement from President Donald Trump and Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said on Monday.

    "United States and Canadian forces jointly conduct aerospace warning, aerospace control, and maritime warning in defense of North America," the statement noted. "We will work to modernize and broaden our NORAD Partnership in these key domains, as well as in cyber and space."

    The sides will also increase coordination on cross-border security and establish a robust entry-exit record system.

    "Our two countries are committed to a coordinated entry-exit information system so that records of land and air entries into one country establish exit records for the other," the statement said.
