Canada eyes Asia after U.S. delays Keystone project

HONOLULU, Nov 13 (Reuters) - Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper said on Sunday his country will make a bigger push to sell its energy products to Asia after Washington delayed a decision to approve the Keystone XL Canada-to-Texas oil pipeline project.

“This does underscore the necessity of Canada making sure that we are able to access Asia markets for our energy products,” Harper told reporters on the sidelines of the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation forum.

“That will be an important priority of our government going forward and I indicated that yesterday to the president of China.” (Reporting by Rachelle Younglai)
