Trudeau replied that he was not asked for a meeting.
The President of the United States Donald trump rejected the request of the Prime Minister of Canada Justin Trudeau about meeting one on one session of the UN General Assembly, reports Reuters..
As explained to the American leader, he rejected the request of the canadian Prime Minister about the meeting, because bilateral negotiations on the North American free trade agreement (NAFTA) go wrong, and the fact that the US is dissatisfied with the negotiators of Canada.
“We are very dissatisfied with the negotiations and the negotiating style of Canada. We really don’t like their representative,” said trump.
Then trump told reporters that he had rejected a request by Trudeau about the meeting “because his rates are too high, and he seems unwilling to change its position.”
“And I told him: “Forget about the meeting, and to be honest, we were thinking about how to impose duties on imported cars from Canada,” said trump.
According to the Agency, the canadian party declared that “no meeting has not been requested”.
“No the meeting was not proposed. We have no more comments,” – said the press-Secretary of the Trudeau Chantal Gagnon.
Earlier it was reported that the United States and Mexico have agreed to conclude a new trade agreement to replace the North American free trade agreement (NAFTA).
According to the President of the United States Donald trump talks with Canada, which is a party to the NAFTA agreement should start immediately.
He also threatened Canada’s increase in duties on cars, if not reached a three way deal.
In turn, Canada has long expressed a desire to remain a member of NAFTA, renegotiation of the terms of which lasted for more than a year, but was not invited to the latest negotiations between the U.S. and Mexico. Now Ottawa needs to adopt the proposed conditions of the tripartite agreement, or to negotiate with each country separately on a bilateral agreement.
The North American free trade agreement NAFTA between Canada, Mexico and the United States began to operate in 1994. Main purpose of the agreement is to eliminate barriers to trade and investment.
