6:08 am
decisive actions to curb the climate crisis. our highest priority is, of course, end in coven, 19, and being focused on economic recovery, strengthen supply chain support. as he owns. it's important to define things together to set aside myths and prejudices, for example, to stop excluding migrants when their manpower is in high demand in canada and in the united states. mister president is the delight to have you here. view as president also held one on one meetings. central to discussions with his mexican counterpart was migration control and reform. an issue that a sharply impacted on the relationship between the 2 countries. 4th grade to welcome back to the premise through earlier biden and canadian prime minister justin crudo talked about forging a climate change policy, particularly topical, given the flooding occurring in canada. ah,

6:11 am
some worrying canada down to the subsidies for electrical vehicles in the united states are going to exclude canada. so some of these, some of these things are bilateral, important issues that we'll have to be discuss later. and i think mr. buy will have to give some ground on that. there are some consensus of that i didn't look as a brother in mexico has used immigrants, trans migration through mexico as a card against washington and to try to force washington not to give it a very hard time when it comes to energy. there is a lot of complaints here in texas, for example, about mexico's nationalistic approach to energy. and of course, the electric bill that would exclude a lot of investment from the united states. and there's a lot of complaints on mr. lopez over at or would like to be much more nationalistic, uncertain sectors. i don't think you can, at the end of the day achieve any kind of arrangement on immigration, on trade, on security and all kinds of issues. if you do not link them and all of them will

6:22 am
a focus now on vaccination and less of a focus on other control measures like face masks and interiors in the bid, which i think is incredibly important. the death tolls on what they were earlier in the break, but people are still dying. and once again, europe is the center of the world's coven. 19 pandemic will reach helens, out to 0. now a palestinian rights organization has called for a rapid and impartial investigation. after a prisoner died in hosp, for whilst it is really custody sammy ella moore had spent 13 years in prison. the palestinian center for human rights says it's quotes extremely concerned. he hadn't received adequate and timely medical care. human else aid reports from garza pictures of sammy alarm wor, hang at his home in gaza. and at his funeral, they were supposed to welcome his return. after he was released from an railey
