Canada Says Agreed With Us To Keep Nafta Alive No Talks Set

28

– Canada agreed with the United States on Thursday that slow-moving talks to update NAFTA should continue although they did not set a date for the next round, a senior official said in remarks casting further doubt on the chances of a deal this year.

Negotiations to modernize the North American Free Trade Agreement started last August and were initially scheduled to finish by the end of December.

That deadline has been extended several times as Canada and Mexico struggle to accommodate far-reaching U.S. demands for change such as a sunset clause that would allow one nation to pull out after five years. Canada and Mexico reject the idea.
