HONOLULU (Reuters) - Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper vowed on Sunday to keep pressure on the United States to approve the $7 billion Keystone pipeline project to ship crude oil from Alberta to Texas.
After meeting with President Barack Obama at an Asia-Pacific leaders forum, Harper said his government will not give up on the project.
“I did indicate to (Obama) a couple of things. One is that we continue to push for an adoption of the decision, that you know I view this is in the self-evident interest of both the United States and Canadian economies,” Harper told reporters at the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation summit.
