In Lima, Vice President Pence says NAFTA deal possible in several weeks

In Lima, Vice President Pence says NAFTA deal possible in several weeks

Pence said the two countries were close to reaching agreements on issues such as immigration, combating drugs and NAFTA.

Vice President Mike Pence has congratulated Chile's Sebastian Pinera on his return to the presidency. — Pence defended the president while building support among US allies for the joint strikes with Britain and France.

The billionaire Pinera served as Chile's president from 2010 to 2014 and returned to office in recent weeks.

He told reporters at the Summit of the Americas in Lima, Peru, yesterday that the operation "significantly eroded" and "degraded" Syrian chemical weapons capabilities and that the mission was "completely accomplished".

President Donald Trump has long assailed the impact of NAFTA on US workers and insisted on a new round of negotiations with Canada and Mexico on the deal.

"All of this is being carefully analyzed and specific questions are being asked during this round of the USA negotiators (in charge of) rules of origin".

This comes two months after an attempt to schedule a meeting in Washington between Pena Nieto and the United States president was called off due to Trump's harsh rhetoric regarding NAFTA and immigration.

Pence said he was grateful for the opportunity to meet with the Mexican president, although he made no reference to Pena Nieto's call for "mutual respect".

After the meeting with Pence, Trudeau said the "positive momentum" included the thorny issue of USA demands around automobile production.

While the crisis in Syria was front and centre, Trudeau and Pence also expressed optimism about the state of NAFTA negotiations, the results of which will have dramatic ramifications for the USA and Canada.

"There is a desire and a recognition by all three NAFTA partners that the timelines imposed upon us by both the upcoming, the imminent Mexican elections and the upcoming American midterms, means that we have a certain amount of pressure to try and move forward successfully in the coming weeks", Trudeau said.

US President Donald Trump has threatened to kill NAFTA if it is not changed to secure better terms for USA workers and companies.

U.S. Vice President Mike Pence is praising Peru's "strong stand" on the "tyranny and humanitarian crisis" in Venezuela.

The Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons says in a statement that its team will stick to its plan to investigate last weekend's suspected poison gas attack in Douma.

In condemning the US-led attack, Syrian President Bashar al-Assad insisted on Saturday that the missile strikes would only strengthen his nation's resolve to keep its fight against Western-backed terror groups and "crush terrorism in every inch of the nation". He was sworn in after Peru's congress voted to accept the resignation of President Pedro Pablo Kuczynski after a corruption scandal.

A global chemical warfare watchdog group says its fact-finding mission to Syria will go ahead even after the USA -led airstrikes.

On Friday, auto industry executives said United States trade negotiators significantly softened their demands to increase regional automotive content under a reworked NAFTA trade pact in an effort to seal a deal in the next few weeks. The vice president spoke to top Republican and Democratic leaders from his hotel suite before attending a banquet hosted by Peruvian President Martin Vizcarra.

VP Pence called the USA led airstrikes on Syria a success.
