  • Canada's Freeland says U.S. NAFTA talks still constructive, productive

Dairy trade is one of the final sticking points as part of the NAFTA talks between the us and Canada.

The U.S. and Mexico worked out a preliminary agreement last month, but Canada has yet to agree to the terms presented by the u-s.

The prime minister Justin Trudeau has been clear about its intentions: we do not assign the management of the offer.

Trudeau, facing elections in 2019, said on Sunday (June 10) that Canada "will not be pushed around", triggering a fierce attack from Trump and his advisers, on Tuesday (June 12).

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau warned, however, that potential U.S. auto tariffs could be "devastating" for industry in both countries. "People are kind of sitting on the sidelines thinking, 'How will this affect us in the future?' If we were to lose the auto industry here that would put us into some type of recession", Chiodo said, noting that the auto trade has "always been pretty fair" for both the USA and Canada.

New chapters governing the digital economy and stronger intellectual property, labor and environmental standards could also work to the benefit of US companies, possibly helping Trump to fulfill his campaign promise of creating more American jobs.

"I think this is a complicated time for employees.

It can't be renamed something or called something else", Perdue said when asked about dairy concessions needed to reach a NAFTA deal, referring to a new milk class created a year ago by Canada to price milk ingredients such as protein concentrates, skim milk and whole milk powder.

As the process grinds on, some in Washington insist Trump can not pull out of NAFTA without the approval of Congress.

Earlier in the day, she noted that Tuesday was the 17th anniversary of the September 11 terrorist attacks to drive home a point about the long-standing relationship between the two countries.

Austen, asked whether Freeland might return to Washington later in the week, said no decisions had been taken. "That's important and that's been a success due to Canada and the United States working together and due to Mexico showing some significant flexibility over the summer", Freeland said.

As a result of what Freeland described as their "hard work", officials decided it would be best to hold a meeting.

"When it comes to Trump tweets there's a discount premium to them", said Carleton University professor and foreign policy expert Fen Hampson, who advises Trudeau to "hunker down, say nothing, not rise to the bait".

In return for concessions on dairy, Canada could request US concessions on the so-called Chapter 19 dispute resolution mechanism that allows Canada to combat USA anti-dumping duties that Ottawa regards as unjustified.

Freeland and Lighthizer left the bargaining table Friday without a deal following two weeks of negotiations. The governing Liberal Party is holding its caucus retreat in Saskatoon on Wednesday and Thursday and it's not known whether Ms. Freeland will pause negotiations after Tuesday to head to the caucus meeting.
