Lead­ers stand for NAFTA

The Garden Island - - Morning Briefing -

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
