FOX's Jared Halpern reports from Ottawa with the President:

President Obama started his Canadian day trip with a call to his Turkish counterpart to offer condolences and assistance after the deadly suicide bombings at the Istanbul airport:

(President Obama) "We stand with the people of Turkey, and we intend to do what's necessary to make sure that these kinds of terrible events are not happening."

Views, President Obama says are shared by the people of Mexico and Canada. The President is here in Canada's capital city for the North American Leaders Summit, a big focus during this summit  on new trade promotion and combating climate change.

President Obama will also address Canada's Parliament.

In Ottawa, Jared Halpern, FOX News.
