MEXICO CITY — The year 2022 will mark 200 years of official relations between Mexico and the United States.

On March 1, signaling a change in tone from former President Donald Trump’s disrespectful and transactional attitude toward Mexico, President Biden and Mr. López Obrador held a virtual meeting at which Mr. Biden pledged to honor their commitment to the United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement and to discuss how they can work together on migration, coronavirus response and recovery and climate change.
