NAFTA agreement should be trilateral, Mexican and Canadian officials stress
Ministers from Canada and Mexico on Monday stressed that the North American Free Trade Agreement should remain a trilateral pact and derided a U.S. proposal for a so-called "sunset clause" that would end the deal after five years.
After a meeting in Mexico City on Wednesday, Canadian Foreign Minister Chrystia Freeland and Mexican Economy Minister Ildefonso Guajardo said they remained optimistic about the progress of the negotiations to revamp the 24-year-old trade pact. Freeland noted she had spoken with U.S. Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer on Monday.
