Canadian Foreign Minister Christia Freeland said her country had not reached any agreement with Washington during recent talks on amending the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA).
"We have no agreement, but the talks will resume this morning," Freeland said.
Freeland said Wednesday during a press conference that there was "good atmosphere and constructive work" in the negotiations, while the US side did not give the negotiator any statement.
The NAFTA Convention, one of the largest economic treaties in the Western Hemisphere, was concluded between the United States, Mexico and Canada in 1992 and has been in force since 1994.
After US President Trump took power in his country, he threatened to withdraw from the pact on the pretext that it was not useful to the United States because it limits production and increases job losses, while providing many benefits to Mexico and Canada at the expense of Washington's interests.
