Prime Minister Justin Trudeau says Canadians would appreciate it if Americans paid more attention to what's going on around the globe.

Trudeau said in a 60 Minutes interview to be aired Sunday that "it might be nice if they paid a little more attention to the world."

Trudeau, elected in October, made the remarks after being asked what Canadians don't like about the U.S.

"Having a little more of an awareness of what's going on in the rest of the world, I think is, is what many Canadians would hope for Americans," he said in a transcript released to The Associated Press.

The 60 Minutes profile of Trudeau will air just days before he travels to the White House for a state visit.
