Canada's PM sees possibility to build on U.S.-Mexico NAFTA deal

"But we know Canada's interests are what we have to stand up for. we are looking for the right deal, not just for Canada but for the United States", he said at an event hosted by the Council on Foreign Relations in NY.

However Lighthizer said today that if it's not done in time, then Lopez Obrador might want to renegotiate: "If we push it beyond that date then we have a new negotiation with Lopez Obrador and we don't know where that would go at all", he said. "We're going to go ahead with Mexico". "Our hope is that Canada comes along and joins that right now". Markets are nervous about the impact on a deal that underpins $1.2 trillion in annual trade. The two are in NY for a United Nations meeting but it is unclear whether they will meet.

The chief US trade negotiator is scheduled to meet with Canadian Foreign Minister Chrystia Freeland on the sidelines of the annual United Nations General Assembly meeting in NY.


Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau spoke before Lighthizer at an event hosted by the Council on Foreign Relations in NY and took a more cautious tone about the outcome. "I think there's a possibility there to build on what they agreed", Trudeau said when asked whether the U.S.

If the remaining gaps can not be bridged in the next few days, the administration will request congressional approval of a deal with Mexico only, Lighthizer said in NY at the Concordia summit, an annual conference on policy issues.

The United States, citing security reasons, imposed tariffs on Canadian steel and aluminum in late May.
