Canadian trade negotiators to brief PM Trudeau in person

NAFTA Talks To Resume This Week

A political deadline in Mexico to sign the deal by December 1, plus requirements in American law have put pressure on Canada to join the pact by the end of this month at the latest. She said the talks were at a point where discussing them face-to-face with the prime minister "is absolutely essential". But a deal without Canada has virtually no chance of being passed, Mulroney said.

"I don't think President Trump will go to the mat over Chapter 19.

Having said all of that, nothing is done until everything is done" - and that says it all really, but US officials have said time is running out to agree on a text that can be signed by American, Canadian and Mexican leaders by November 30, before the current Mexican government leaves office.

At the White House, Trump told reporters Canada wanted a deal "very much" and that talks were "coming along well".

"It seems even if we give a lot, the USA keeps asking for more", said Mr. Kronby, an worldwide trade lawyer with Borden Ladner Gervais.

No word yet on when she might return to Washington to continue NAFTA talks.

Freeland is expected to answer questions from reporters later this afternoon.

"At the end of the day, we're neighbors - and at the end of the day, neighbors help each other when they need help", she said.

After emerging from her meeting with Lighthizer on Friday, Freeland said the negotiations had entered a "very intense" phase, during which officials have been meeting "24-7".

"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".

The two sides have so far been unable to break an impasse over, among other issues, USA access to the Canadian dairy market, a cultural exemption for Canada and the Chapter 19 dispute resolution mechanism.

"We're negotiating all this at once".

Wednesday was the first day that negotiations between the two countries resumed after four intensive days of talks last week ended without a deal on Friday after the mood soured.

Still, "with a bit of flexibility, things could move quickly", the source added.

Trudeau and his ministers will hold a caucus retreat in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, to plot their strategy.

US Ambassador to Canada Kelly Craft meanwhile delivered an address in Gander, Newfoundland, where dozens of in-bound flights were diverted in the immediate aftermath of the September 11, 2001 attacks.

"Sure, it's business and it's important, but Gander is the place that - in a snapshot - illustrates the Canada/US relationship".

"We have been very clear on that, that there can not be more access given", Wiens said in a telephone interview.

"So if we don't find some way to accommodate some of that, then we're not going to have a deal".

Trudeau has said Canada could be willing to be flexible on dairy.
