Trump announces ‘incredible’ trade deal with MexicoND
BBC News, Tuesday August 28 2018
US President Donald Trump announced an apparent breakthrough in renegotiations of the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) on Tuesday, saying the agreed terms would make for an “incredible” deal that was “much more fair”. The treaty has been being reviewed for the past year, but in the last five weeks, Canada – the third country in the pact – has not been part of the discussions. "We will see whether or not we decide to put up Canada or just do a separate deal with Canada," Mr Trump said. Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said he had spoken with President Trump after the breakthrough with Canada, saying the pair had had a “constructive conversation”. A spokesman for Canadian Foreign Minister Chrystia Freeland said the country is “encouraged” by the progress made by the US and Mexico but did not comment on the specific terms. “We will only sign a new NAFTA that is good for Canada and good for the middle class. Canada’s signature is required,” spokesman Adam Austen said.
