U.S. softens stance on NAFTA sunset clause: Mexican official
Mexico`s incoming trade negotiator said on Saturday that the United States, in talks to revamp the North American Free Trade Agreement, had softened its position on a "sunset clause" that would force a renegotiation of the deal every five years.
"It`s going to come out. It`s no longer what the United States was putting first in any way," Jesus Seade, designated chief negotiator of Mexico`s next government, told reporters outside the U.S. Trade Representative`s office.
He also said that a "correct focus" on NAFTA`s energy chapter has already been substantially agreed.
