MEXICO CITY (Reuters) – Mexican President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador said on Friday October 13th he had sent a letter to U.S. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi urging her to work toward the approval of a new North American trade deal between the United States, Mexico and Canada.
Speaking at a regular news conference, Lopez Obrador said he was encouraged that U.S. Democratic lawmakers were concerned about the working conditions of Mexican workers following a visit by a U.S. congressional delegation to Mexico this week.
“There’s agreement, and I took the opportunity to send Mrs Pelosi a letter explaining that it’s in the interest of the people of the three nations, that this deal is approved,” he said, referring to the United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA).
