WASHINGTON (Reuters) - President Barack Obama will visit Mexico in February to attend a North American leaders' summit.

White House spokesman Jay Carney announced on Monday that Obama would travel to Toluca, Mexico, on February 19.

He will attend the annual North American leaders summit along with Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto and Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper.

Obama visited Mexico last May and held talks with Pena Nieto.

Carney said the leaders will discuss a range of issues such as economic competitiveness, trade and investment and citizen security.
