Officials from each country have insisted there's nothing unusual about the one-on-one discussions on the three-country deal because it's allowing the US and Mexico sort tough bilateral issues, such as their differences on autos. "But there is no final NAFTA deal unless Canada, in the few remaining days, agrees to rejoin the process and also comes to an agreement".
But some observers have refused to buy that argument.
Trump argues the 24-year-old pact has facilitated an exodus of manufacturing jobs from the United States to Mexico, but NAFTA's supporters say it has kept the region competitive.
"We're not negotiating with Canada right now", said Trump, who has frequently complained about Canada's supply-managed dairy sector. But we'll see how that works out.
India vs England 3rd Test Day 2 live updates
For England , James Anderson (3/64), Stuart Broad (3/72) and Chris Woakes (3/75) picked up three wickets apiece. India's hopes of a series win against England are teetering ahead of the third Test at Trent Bridge.
Recent discussions with Mexico are largely over provisions affecting the auto industry, and Guajardo said the sides had made "a lot of progress", but still needed to finalize details like the transition period for implementing new commitments.
The press offices of U.S. Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer and Mexican Economy Minister Ildefonso Guajardo didn't return emails seeking comment on the development. "And then I hope once we get one with Mexico, that Canada will come along", he said. NAFTA is a three-way agreement that includes Canada and without the U.S.'s northern neighbor's agreement, NAFTA could end up sidelined - permanently.
During the cabinet meeting, Donald Trump said he was in "no rush" to conclude the talks, stressing that he wanted to make "the right deal".
"If you don't have a breakthrough, as you call it, don't do the deal because it's a lousy situation for the United States", he told Lighthizer.
Manchester City vs. Huddersfield
Vincent Kompany and David Silva returned to the line up for the Citizens, while Gabriel Jesus joined Sergio Aguero in the attack. At half time Laurent Depoitre came on for Huddersfield as they switched up their formation to a 4-4-2.
"We have much better alternatives than that".
United States officials have indicated that if the deal can be agreed by the end of August it would be possible to win congressional approval for the new NAFTA before Mexico's President-elect Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador takes office December 1.
Trump added that NAFTA has "been a disaster for our country". The ministers will meet again on Tuesday, he said.
