Leaders stand for NAFTA
MEXICO CITY — Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto and Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau have reaffirmed their commitment to a trilateral renegotiation of the North American Free Trade Agreement.
Speaking during a state visit by Trudeau in Mexico City, the leaders dodged questions seeking their reaction to comments made a day earlier by President Donald Trump about the possibility of the U.S. seeking bilateral agreements if it walks away from NAFTA.
Trudeau conceded that “we are in a somewhat unpredictable context,” but said Canada and Mexico continue to believe a trilateral agreement was the best way forward. ••• Associated Press
