Nafta agreement could come in weeks, say Pence and Trudeau

U.S. Vice President Mike Pence waves as he arrives at Jorge Chavez international airport in Lima Peru Friday

"I'll leave this summit very hopeful that we are very close to a renegotiated Nafta", and "there is a real possibility that we could arrive at an agreement within the next several weeks", Pence told reporters at the Summit of the Americas in Lima. "We would like to see a renegotiated deal land sooner rather than later", he added.

The vice president also said that the topic of funding for U.S. President Donald Trump's proposed wall on the U.S. border with Mexico did not come up in Pence's meeting with Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto.

'I think President Pena Nieto understands that he and President Trump have a difference of opinion on that, ' he said.

The meeting between Pence and Trudeau was largely overshadowed by those strikes, as the two condemned the Syrian government's alleged use of chemical weapons on April 7 that killed at least 40 people and injured hundreds more.

This was Pence's first media interaction after United States forces launched precision strikes against Assad regime targets associated with the use of chemical weapons in Syria. He said the United States and its allies "will not tolerate the use of chemical weapons against innocent men, women, and children".

Never prolific, Forman's output slowed even more after " Amadeus ", and his three subsequent films were disappointments. They were named after comedian Andy Kaufman and Jim Carrey, who played the part of Kaufman in " Man on the Moon ".

The Syrian government has denied responsibility for the attack, while Russian Federation has pointed the finger at Israel and Britain.

U.S. -Mexican trade has grown rapidly since NAFTA, with the U.S.as Mexico's leading partner in merchandise trade, and Mexico as the third-largest trade partner of the U.S. If Trump were to scrap the deal, experts say that it could cost Mexico more than 950,000 low-skilled jobs and lower its GDP growth by 0.9 percent. Pence, for his part, told Trudeau that the USA was "encouraged" by the progress and hopeful it can lead to "more fair and reciprocal trade".

Trudeau will meet Macron and May next week when he travels to France and then Britain.

There had been hopes leading up to this weekend's summit that an agreement might be signed, but that did not happen and instead, US negotiators softened their demands on autos even as Trump said he will to renegotiate "forever".
