The two leaders will meet on Thursday, according to a media release from the Prime Minister's Office.

Trudeau's team said the two leaders will discuss the ratification of the new North American free trade deal and China's detention of two Canadian citizens.

Businessman Michael Spavor and former diplomat Michael Kovrig were detained separately in December, shortly after Canada arrested Huawei chief financial officer Meng Wanzhou in Vancouver on a U.S. extradition warrant.

Canada has only a short time window to pass its implementation bill into law before Parliament rises for the summer, and before the federal election campaign begins.

China blames Canada for rocky relations as Trump looks to intervene.
China says Canada should respect its "judicial sovereignty" in the case of two Canadians it detained and later charged with spying.
