Prime Minister Justin Trudeau had a conversation with U.S. President Donald Trump “on the margins” of the NATO summit in Brussels Wednesday.

During the unofficial bilateral meeting, the pair discussed trade, including NAFTA, the Prime Minister’s Office said without elaborating further. Trudeau and Trump also discussed the new Mexican President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador.

The NATO summit is the first time Trudeau and Trump have been face-to-face since Canada levelled retaliatory tariffs on U.S. goods, over its steel and aluminum tariffs on Canada.

It was also their first in-person meeting since the G7 which ended in acrimony and was followed by Trump and members of his administration levelling personal attacks at Trudeau, including Trump calling him “very dishonest and weak.”
