US, Canada to begin ‘detailed’ trade talks Wednesday: minister


WASHINGTON, Aug 29, 2018 (BSS/AFP) – Washington and Ottawa will enter into detailed talks Wednesday to salvage the North American trade pact, Canadian Foreign Minister Chrystia Freeland said.

Freeland added that talks would be eased because Mexico had made “tough decisions” in reaching a preliminary trade agreement with the United States on Monday.

Mexico’s effort “clears the way for us to have some significant, substantive, and, I think, productive conversations with the US this week,” Freeland said.
