United States vice-president says new NAFTA deal could be done in 'several weeks'

Pence: US prepared to respond to possible retaliation by Syria

While the crisis in Syria was front and centre, Trudeau and Pence also expressed optimism about the state of NAFTA negotiations, the results of which will have dramatic ramifications for the US and Canada.

'Our message to Russian Federation is, "you're on the wrong side of history", ' Pence also said. While attending the America summit at the Washington D.C. Pence said he supported the statement of US President Donald Trump referring to Syria attack as "mission accomplished" saying that Syria operation is "completely successful" as quoted by The Fox.

Early in the day, Pentagon officials suggested they'd proof which the Assad regime was supporting the assault, but they couldn't complicated on the information as it was recovered.

At the same time, he warned that the US was prepared to "sustain this effort if necessary", though he expressed hopes that the combination of strikes and condemnation from countries like Canada would see Syria abandon such weapons.

Further Pence said that "minimum" chlorine was used in the attack along with serin. 'It's time for Russian Federation to get the message President Trump delivered last night.

"I'll leave this summit very hopeful that we are very close to a renegotiated Nafta", and "there is a real possibility that we could arrive at an agreement within the next several weeks", Pence told reporters at the Summit of the Americas in Lima.

Noting that "you're known by the company you keep", Pence said Russian Federation needs to join other nations in opposing the use of chemical weapons in Syria and "live up to the commitments they made".

The Nafta trade agreement could be renegotiated in the next few weeks, US Vice President Mike Pence and Canada's Prime Minister said yesterday in Peru, avoiding new political opposition that could emerge during Congressional and Mexican elections later this year.

But US relations with Mexico had soured in recent weeks as US President Donald Trump has sought to link the trade talks to Mexican efforts to stop migrants illegally crossing the border into the US, and ordered National Guard troops to the border.

USA negotiators discussing changes to the North American Free Trade Agreement also recently floated the idea that 40 percent of automotive production must occur in areas paying wages of between $16 to $19 per hour.

The vice president also said that the topic of funding for Trump's proposed wall on the US border with Mexico did not come up in Pence's meeting with Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto.
