USA trade negotiators have reduced their demand for regional auto content under a reworked NAFTA trade deal to 75 percent from the 85 percent they had sought, the head of Mexico's automotive industry association (AMIA), said on Friday.
"We agreed to keep up work towards reaching a deal and to summon our special negotiating teams to accelerate their efforts", Pena Nieto told reporters after meeting Pence.
Vice President Mike Pence, attending an global summit on Saturday, claimed he backs President Trump's assertion earlier in the day from the afternoon which the USA -led airstrikes that weekend at Syria led to "mission realized", And he warned Syrian president Russian Federation that it was "around the incorrect side of record".
After meeting Pena Nieto and Trudeau separately, Pence said he was leaving the summit "very hopeful that we are very close to a renegotiated NAFTA".
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".
With U.S. mid-term congressional elections also pending in November, Trudeau said Canada would defer to Mexico and the United States on a timeline.
"Last night, the aim of the mission of this (our) commander-in-chief handed our military forces was utterly attained, with accelerated professionalism", Pence claimed in a reaction to reporters' inquiries about whether Trump reluctantly reevaluate the mission's no effect.
And while Trump grapples with the ongoing Russian Federation investigation led by special counsel Robert Mueller, Pence sought to draw a bright line against Vladimir Putin's alliance with Syria following the suspected chemical attack.
While President Donald Trump has vowed to scrap NAFTA and pull out of trade agreements as part of his America First policy, most of the region has been moving in the opposite direction.
Vizcarra says addressing corruption "is the utmost importance to us".
Vice President Mike Pence on Saturday called United States led airstrikes on Syria a completely accomplished mission while in Peru to renegotiate the NAFTA trade pact. The vice president spoke to top Republican and Democratic leaders from his hotel suite before attending a banquet hosted by Peruvian President Martin Vizcarra.
"We believe that it has significantly eroded and crippled the ability of the regime to produce chemicals", Pence further claimed despite the fact that the previous U.S. administration was heavily involved in the process of Syria's dismantling of its entire chemical weapons arsenal back in 2014 in the presence of global inspectors.
