Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Reuters.com: “Mexico, U.S. draw closer to finalizing USMCA: source”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. and Mexican negotiators are “very close” to finalizing the United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement, a Washington-based source familiar with the talks said on Saturday, after a top Mexico official said the two sides had made progress on the trade deal.

The person added that U.S. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi still needed to agree on revisions of the pact, known as USMCA.

Mexico approved USMCA this year, but U.S. ratification has been held up by Democratic lawmakers, who have voiced concerns over the enforcement of labor and environmental provisions.

“We’re getting close, I’m confident,” Mexico’s deputy foreign minister for North America, Jesus Seade, told reporters outside the U.S. Trade Representative’s office in Washington. He said he would likely return on Monday to continue talks.

A spokesman for Pelosi could not immediately be reached for comment, and the U.S. Trade Representative’s office did not respond to a request for comment.
