US, Mexico discuss immigration and NAFTA

US President Donald Trump demanded NAFTA be renegotiated after repeatedly criticizing the 24-year-old pact as a "terrible deal" and officials now are rushing to conclude the talks before Lopez Obrador takes office on December 1.

Before he entered the meeting, Guajardo said Mexico was getting close to overcoming sticking points with the United States. "And then the idea will be can we get a big trade deal prior to [Donald Trump's] next election" in 2020, Farley said.

Canada's foreign minister recently said the country is ready to resume NAFTA talks "as quickly and intensively as possible".

U.S. and Mexican officials have said they aim to conclude discussions this month and it is the third straight week ministers have traveled to Washington for meetings.

At the close of the 3rd consecutive week of discussions in Washington, Guajardo said a deal was still possible by the end of the month.

The United States has sought tougher rules on what percentage of a vehicle's components need to be built in the NAFTA region to avoid tariffs, as well as demanding that a certain number of cars and trucks be made in factories paying at least $16 an hour.

Asked if Canada would rejoin the NAFTA talks next week, Guajardo said, "Hopefully".

"Deal with Mexico is coming along nicely".
