WASHINGTON (AP) — One of President Barack Obama's first meetings of the New Year will be with Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto (PAYN'-yuh nee-EH'-toh).
The White House says the leaders will meet in the Oval Office on Jan. 6.
The White House says Obama looks forward to working with Pena Nieto to continue strengthening economic, security and other ties between the U.S. and Mexico.
Obama said earlier this week that the U.S. has offered to help Mexico figure out what happened to a group of 43 college students who have been missing since September.
Next month's meeting follows Obama's trip to Mexico earlier this year.
