PM Trudeau and Top Mexican Trade Official Jesús Seade Meet in Ottawa

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and Mexico Undersecretary for North America Jesús Seade comment briefly ahead of their meeting on Parliament Hill.

The undersecretary will meet later in the day with Deputy Minister Chrystia Freeland for further talks on the new North American trade deal. Seade, Freeland and United States Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer met two days ago in Washington, D.C., in a new push to get the deal ratified. The renegotiated NAFTA was signed between Canada, the United States and Mexico on November 30, 2018, after 14 months of intense negotiations, but only Mexico has ratified it.
