MEXICO CITY (Reuters) - Mexico’s Foreign Minister Luis Videgaray said on Tuesday that it would be very difficult to reconcile the framework of the NAFTA trade agreement between the United States, Canada and Mexico in bilateral deals.

Speaking at an event in Mexico City with Canada’s foreign minister who also backed a trilateral approach, Videgaray said elections next year in Mexico would make talks more difficult and he called for starting negotiations as soon as possible.
