United States, Canada and Mexico halt NAFTA

Canada, the United States, and Mexico have halted the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) negotiations, and extended the discussion into mid 2018.

All three nations have criticized their North American neighbors, and called their proposals counterproductive, with Canadian Foreign Affairs Minister Chrystia Freeland, saying the US conducted a “series of unconventional proposals,” and the US Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer saying, “I am surprised and disappointed by the resistance to change from our negotiating partners.”

Part of US President Donald Trump’s campaign promise was to reform NAFTA, and revise to deal to better benefit American workers and manufacturers, but Mexico and Canada have stated it would undermine the values of the over two-decade old deal.
