This post was originally published on this site

(Reuters) – Mexico’s deputy foreign minister for North America, Jesus Seade, said on Friday that negotiators were dealing with the “last issues” that remain in the United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA) trade deal negotiation.

When asked about a possible delay in the talks due to disagreements around steel, Seade, who is in Washington, D.C. for the talks, said “everything can be resolved.”

Mexico approved the USMCA this year, but U.S. ratification has been held up by Democratic lawmakers, who have voiced concerns over the enforcement of labor and environmental provisions.
