US President Trump’s letter to incoming Mexico president Obrador

Freeland said that the United States taxes on Canadian solar panels have impacted businesses and workers on both sides of the border.

Request for review of the decision in accordance with the provisions of Chapter 20 of the NAFTA was announced the next day after the President-elect of Mexico published a letter to the US President Donald Trump, urging him to continue talks on a new trilateral trade Treaty.

"We know there have been bumps in the road between our two countries but President Trump is determined to make the relationship between our peoples better and stronger", Secretary Pompeo said at the start of the 50-min meeting with Lopez Obrador, who will take office on 1 December.

Trump's letter, which was sent in English and in Spanish, was seen by AFP and read to the press by incoming foreign minister Marcelo Ebrard with American approval.

The NAFTA challenge comes as the three countries take a pause from renegotiating the pact, and as Mexico and Canada fight back against punishing US tariffs on imports of steel and aluminum.

Negotiations to reshape the 1994 pact were launched last August at the behest of Trump, who blames NAFTA for the US trade deficit with Mexico and argues the deal has cost jobs at home. Ontario-based Silfab Solar Inc., Heliene Inc. and Canadian Solar Solutions Inc., along with U.S. -based distributor Canadian Solar (USA) Inc. tabulated the provocation at the U.S. Court of International Trade in NY.


"Both of our countries benefit from an economically prosperous North America", Trump wrote. Obrador wrote in the letter that was delivered to Trump at talks in Mexico on Sunday.

Canada and the United States remain deadlocked, however, on the Trump demand for a "sunset clause" that would terminate the deal in five years unless all three countries ratified an extension, the official said.

Lopez Obrador's words come at a time when the U.S.is facing backlash and confusion on the Trump administration's handling of the influx of immigrants, especially from Central and South America, and help from the bordering government will hopefully ease tensions on both sides.

"Prolonging the uncertainty could stop investment in the medium and long-term, which clearly would challenge economic growth", Lopez Obrador added in his letter. One question asked respondents for their biggest national security concern.

The research was conducted between February and April and included eight focus groups and a telephone poll of more than 1,500 respondents.
