Perdue Says NAFTA Must Include Dairy Fix

NAFTA Talks To Resume This Week

Canadian negotiators are traveling to brief Prime Minister Justin Trudeau in person on the state of negotiations with the United States on a deal that would allow Canada to remain in a North American trade bloc. A political deadline in Mexico to sign the deal by December 1, plus requirements in American law have put pressure on Canada to join the pact by the end of this month at the latest.

Chrystia Freeland, Canada's foreign minister, returned to Washington on Tuesday for talks with U.S. Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer.

Mr. Ujczo said he doesn't believe Mr. Trump feels strongly about Chapter 19.

Trudeau, who over the previous year has faced increasing criticism for backtracking on promises, ordering endless consultations on major topics and failing to fulfill many of his campaign promises, had taken a tougher stance against the United States in recent weeks.

President Donald Trump warned Friday that he would impose 20-per-cent tariffs on auto imports from Canada if it does not agree to a "fair" deal, a move he said would bring "ruination" here.

New chapters governing the digital economy and stronger intellectual property, labor and environmental standards could also work to the benefit of US companies, possibly helping Trump to fulfill his campaign promise of creating more American jobs.

"I spoke with Ambassador Lighthizer over the weekend", Freeland said.

"I think it's something that we obviously have to be aware the president is contemplating".

The two countries will meet in Washington on Tuesday to decide how they'll include the U.S.'s agreement with Mexico into the deal.

Meanwhile, figures provided to CBC News show that Canada collected almost $300 million in July and August after Ottawa slapped USA imports with retaliatory tariffs.

Freeland returned to Washington on Tuesday to continue meeting with her U.S. counterpart.

Freeland added that to achieve a NAFTA deal, "It's going to take flexibility on all sides".

"Our farmers don't have access to the Canadian markets the way that they have access to us", Perdue said in an interview that aired Sunday on C-SPAN.

Freeland emerged after meeting with Lighthizer, saying talks were occurring in a "good" atmosphere.

"When it comes to Trump tweets there's a discount premium to them", said Carleton University professor and foreign policy expert Fen Hampson, who advises Trudeau to "hunker down, say nothing, not rise to the bait". Eares are on the ground for USA and China developments but at the fore again was the NAFTA negotiations.

The officials have held two weeks of talks but ended Friday afternoon without reaching an agreement that would keep Canada in the three-nation pact. The governing Liberal Party is holding its caucus retreat in Saskatoon on Wednesday and Thursday and it's not known whether Ms. Freeland will pause negotiations after Tuesday to head to the caucus meeting. "That's not who we are", Craft said in prepared remarks.

"Sure, it's business and it's important, but Gander is the place that - in a snapshot - illustrates the Canada/U.S. relationship".

"We're just going to stay working constructively to get to that win, win, win that we know is there".
