OTTAWA (Reuters) - Canada will scrap a requirement obliging Mexican visitors to obtain visas, Liberal Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said on Tuesday, a move designed to end a diplomatic dispute between the two nations.

Trudeau said the restrictions would be lifted on Dec. 1 this year. Canada's former Conservative government imposed the visa rules in 2009 to stop what they said were bogus asylum claims.
