Canada's Trudeau to tell Trump: we're not your problem at NAFTA

Britain's Prime Minster Theresa May leaves 10 Downing Street in London

The newspaper said British ministers were looking at joining the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) as part of planning for the possibility of Britain leaving the European Union in March 2019 without a trade deal. "So we'll see what happens with Nafta, but I've been opposed to Nafta for a long time, in terms of the fairness of Nafta".

Besides aiming to clinch a US trade deal or forming some new trade grouping, some British supporters of Brexit have pondered joining an existing trade alliance such as NAFTA.

Pressed over whether the NAFTA pact could degenerate into a series of bilateral deals, Trudeau said that his administration was "ready for anything and will continue to protect Canadian interests".

Further, "attempts by Boeing to put tens of thousands of aerospace workers out of work across Canada is not something we look on positively".

"It's possible we won't be able to make a deal, and it's possible that we will", he said. "I think it's just a bridge too far", said Wendy Cutler, the Asia Society's Washington policy director and former chief US negotiator for the Trans-Pacific Partnership trade deal canceled by Trump.

US President Trump has warned that tough talks lie ahead on the future of NAFTA, indicating that the US could withdraw.

Trump and Trudeau met as negotiators from the three NAFTA countries gathered in the Washington suburb of Arlington to get the next round of trade talks under way. Mexico could leave NAFTA and have the strength to move on without any serious long-term structural damage to the economy, he said.

People briefed on US proposals to be presented this week said Washington is seeking to sharply lift North American content threshold in vehicle manufacturing. Just four percent of food items in the U.K. originated from North America, and 54 percent of food consumed in the U.K., originated in the U.K. The negotiations were extended on Wednesday by two days to Oct 17.

Meanwhile, a veteran Mexican diplomat has expressed fears about the possibility that NAFTA could be ditched in favour of bilateral agreements, an issue raised by Trump as well.

The former House speaker and friend of the president says a deal will eventually be reached, after long and hard negotiations.

"U.S. negotiators have made conditions so tough that Mexico and Canada could reject them, which would be the flawless excuse for the USA government to announce its departure from NAFTA", Coutino wrote.

The former Conservative leader, who's known as an ardent free trader, says powerful anti-trade forces that predate Trump's presidency are at play in American society and aren't going away anytime soon.
