The US and Mexico aren't scheming to invade Canada, according to U.S. State Department spokeswoman Victoria Nuland.
On Wednesday, she thrice denied that a closed-door meeting between Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and Mexico's foreign minister was to plot a takeover of Canada.
"This isn't some secret thing to invade Canada or something like that?" a reporter asked Nuland during a press briefing about why a signing ceremony between the two countries wasn't open to the press.
"No, no, no," Nuland replied. "It's not anything classified."
That's a relief.
