US pushing for NAFTA deal as Thursday deadline approaches
Updated : May 16, 2018 09:26 PM IST
Mexico's economy minister said he saw diminishing chances for a new NAFTA agreement before a Thursday deadline to present a deal that could be signed by the US Congress.
US House Speaker Paul Ryan has said that the Republican-controlled Congress would need to be notified of a new deal by Thursday to give lawmakers a chance to approve it before a newly elected Congress takes over in January.
Ryan said Congress cannot begin working on the negotiating law known as "fast track" without a trade deal in hand.
