Trump and Trudeau discuss border co-operation

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and US President Donald Trump discussed US-Canada border co-operation in a telephone call on Thursday.

Asylum seekers have been crossing into Canada in recent weeks, putting a strain on border communities in the provinces of Manitoba and Quebec.

The two leaders also discussed a long-running dispute over lumber exports and the upcoming G7 and G20 summits.

The conversation was a follow-up to Mr Trudeau’s recent trip to Washington.
