Canada’s Freeland returns to Washington for NAFTA talks

Canada’s Freeland returns to Washington for NAFTA talks

Negotiators appear focused primarily on three key issues: dairy, culture and the Chapter 19 dispute resolution mechanism.

"I think it is good for him in the short term".

"So if we don't find some way to accommodate some of that, then we're not going to have a deal".

He said, however, it was wrong for Canada to have publicly declared it would not accept concessions on certain files.

"The conversations over the weekend continued to be constructive and productive", she said.

Chrystia Freeland, Canada's foreign affairs minister who is leading her country's negotiating effort, last month touted the progress so far on auto talks. Class 7 has to go.

"Maybe that helps us all put into perspective the negotiations that we're having and put into historical significance the relationship between Canada and the United States", Freeland said. "That I know for sure, right from the horse's mouth".

Canadian Foreign Minister Chrystia Freeland announced a breakthrough Tuesday in tense talks with the United States on a revamped continental trade pact, saying a new deal was now "eminently possible".

"That has been the right decision", Freeland said late Tuesday of the mutual agreement to avoid publicly disclosing details of the talks.

As a side note, rumour has it that Idris Elba will be the actor to take on James Bond after Daniel Craig hangs up his jersey. A studio spokesperson told the publication that "we have made no current decisions regarding any upcoming Superman films".

The Canadian trade leaders, who said the discussions were positive, cordial and that there was good faith on both sides of the negotiating table between the long-time trading partners. Eares are on the ground for U.S. and China developments but at the fore again was the NAFTA negotiations.

NAFTA negotiations resumed Tuesday morning as Americans marked the 17th anniversary of the 9/11 terrorist attacks.

"At the end of the day, we're neighbours - and at the end of the day, neighbours help each other when they need help".

Lighthizer faces pressure on dairy from U.S. Senate Democratic leader Chuck Schumer, who wants more Canadian access for milk producers from the northern part of his home state of NY.

"To me, a lot of that is consistent with my suspicion that the US doesn't really want to get a deal [or] at least the [Trump] administration doesn't", he said, citing the leaked off-the-record comments Mr. Trump gave Bloomberg in late August when he said he was refusing to compromise with Canada and that any deal with Canada would be "totally on our terms".

"Even Canadian concessions on dairy may not be enough to make the US keep the current dispute resolutions", said Carlos Capistran and Mingzi Yi, economists at Bank of America Merrill Lynch, in a note. After more than a year of negotiations, Canada and the United States are still trying to resolve differences over the North American Free Trade Agreement, which also includes Mexico.

The U.S. has said it plans to present Congress with the deal it has with Mexico if Canada doesn't get on board.

"There is no question Canada and Mexico are going to get a haircut and the best you can hope for when you get a haircut is that it looks stylish", Mr. Ujczo said.
