Vice President Mike Pence said Saturday he thought talks were "close" for a "successful renegotiation" of the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA), the Washington Examiner reported.
"We think we're close," Pence said, speaking to reporters while attending the Americas Summit in Lima, Peru. "We are encouraged with the progress of our negotiations, and we are hopeful that we can conclude a successful renegotiation."
President Donald Trump's administration is trying to negotiate an agreement by May, hoping a revised deal would be approved by Congress.
Pence made the comments during a meeting with Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, who said he looked forward to "talking about progress in the NAFTA negotiations" with the U.S.
