WASHINGTON — U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson will meet a Canadian cabinet committee when he visits Ottawa next week.
Tillerson’s schedule includes a session with the ministerial committee on Canada-U.S. relations.
Sources say he will travel to Ottawa on Tuesday to discuss the North Korea crisis, as well as a range of other international and bilateral issues.
He also plans to meet Foreign Affairs Minister Chrystia Freeland.
The two are co-hosting an international conference in the new year on the North Korean nuclear crisis.
Tillerson has been seeking non-military solutions to the impasse, while other members of the administration, including President Donald Trump, have expressed skepticism about whether diplomacy can work.
