OTTAWA – Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau will hold a personal meeting with US President Donald Trump at the NATO summit in London, during which he will discuss with him the process of ratification of the Agreement of the United States, Mexico and Canada (the United States – Mexico – Canada Agreement, USMCA).
According to his sources, the meeting will take place at the London residence of the American Ambassador to the UK. One source claims “Canada will demand more information from the US on how the process of ratification of the agreement on the American side is going.”
Earlier on Monday, Trudeau’s press office circulated his schedule for Tuesday in London. It does not list a meeting with Trump, but there are meetings with British Prime Ministers Boris Johnson and the Netherlands Mark Rutte, as well as with Latvian President Egils Levits.
On November 28, Trudeau’s Deputy, Chrystia Freeland, held talks in Washington aimed at speeding up the USMCA ratification process. In early November, the Prime Minister of Canada at a meeting in Ottawa with the Chairman of the House Committee on income and taxes Richard Neal said that in the process of ratification of the new trade agreement between Canada and the United States, there is a positive trend.
