German Chancellor Olaf Scholz and Vice Chancellor Robert Habeck are travelling to Canada on Sunday for energy talks.
Their main goal during their three-day visit is to deepen cooperation between the two countries in the climate and energy sectors, dpa news agency reported.
However, their talks with Prime Minister Justin Trudeau are also due to focus on political, economic and military support for Ukraine’s battles against Russia, and on dealings with China.
Scholz and Habeck, whose brief also includes economy and the environment, first stop in Montreal on Monday, for talks with Trudeau in his constituency.
The two then head for Toronto, where Scholz, Habeck and Trudeau are together due to attend a German-Canadian economic conference. A delegation of more than a dozen business leaders are accompanying the chancellor and vice chancellor.
Lastly, Scholz and Habeck are to pay a visit to the remote town of Stephenville in Newfoundland on Tuesday afternoon, to focus on the development of hydrogen technologies and hydrogen supply chains. They are expected to sign an agreement in this area.
