Mexico is reassuring Canada that it has no plans to sign a two-way trade deal with the United States.
Foreign Affairs Minister Chrystia Freeland, Finance Minister Bill Morneau and International Trade Minister Jim Carr were in Mexico City yesterday where the country’s Foreign Minister said Mexico would follow Freeland’s lead. Last year in Toronto, Freeland refused to throw Mexico under the bus when it came to a 3-way trade deal with the U.S.
After the meeting Freeland said she was “hopeful” the NAFTA talks could now move into high gear.
