Another successful round of NAFTA talks takes place in Washington, D.C. as the U.S. and Canada try to reach a deal by the end of the month.
Canadian Foreign Minister Chrystia Freeland spoke to reporters Tuesday, following a meeting with Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer.
Officials are trying to negotiate an agreement on dairy pricing between the two countries.
This has been the latest hurdle facing both sides and according to reports Tuesday, Canada may be ready to offer concessions on the matter.
“We do believe that a deal is possible, a deal which is good for Canada, good for the United States, good for Mexico,” stated Freeland. “Achieving that deal is going to require goodwill, good faith and flexibility on both sides and we think that’s eminently possible.”
Following the discussions, Freeland will head back to Canada to brief Prime Minister Justin Trudeau on the negotiations.
