Canada may not return to NAFTA talks for ‘days or weeks,’ Mexican minister says as meetings with U.S. continue

WASHINGTON, D.C. It could be “days or weeks” before Canada is invited back to the NAFTA bargaining table, Mexico’s top trade negotiator said Friday after almost a month of meetings between his country and the United States — with no Canadians in the room.

A source familiar with the negotiations said that Canada will definitely not take part when the talks resume next Wednesday.
