Remarks With Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper

Hillary Rodham Clinton
Secretary of State
Ottawa, Canada
March 29, 2010

PRIME MINISTER HARPER: Secretary Clinton, just briefly--welcome. We saw each other not very long ago - I don’t know, did I lose track of time? I don’t think it was very long ago in Montreal for the Haiti Conference. Of course, I’m looking forward to seeing you and President Obama at the Nuclear Summit in April. So wonderful to have you here again. And hope your meetings are very productive as we approach the G8 and G20.

Well, I thank you Prime Minister, once again, for the hospitality and leadership. Canada has been such a close friend and ally. And your work on behalf of Haiti--as we were just talking before the press came in, the UN Conference in New York tomorrow, and Canada has been one of the leaders in driving that process. Hosting the G8 and G20 later in the year. And we look forward to welcoming you to Washington for the Nuclear Security Summit.

STAFF: Thanks everybody.
