Obama to Meet Mexican President-elect Enrique Pena Nieto

U.S. President Barack Obama will host Mexican President-elect Enrique Pena Nieto at his Oval Office on Nov. 27, the White House said on Monday.

"The president looks forward to meeting President-elect Pena Nieto and hearing about his vision for leading Mexico over the next six years," White House spokesman Jay Carney said in a statement.

The duo will discuss a broad range of bilateral, regional and global issues in their meeting, Carney said.

Nieto, the former governor of the state of Mexico, will take over the presidency from Felipe Calderon on Dec. 1.

"The United States remains committed to work in partnership with Mexico to increase economic competitiveness in both countries, promote regional development, advance bilateral efforts to develop a secure and efficient 21st century border, and address our common security challenges," Carney said.
