Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau told the Mexican Senate on Friday (October 13) that the benefits of the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) should be fairly shared.

The leaders of Mexico and Canada on Thursday (October 12) pledged to work towards a renegotiation even as talks taking place in the United States turned sour due to hard-line U.S. demands.

Speaking in Mexico City as a fourth round of talks to rehash NAFTA was held near Washington, Trudeau said all three parties should emerge with a “win-win-win” deal.

The talks in the United States hit obstacles, with tensions increasing dramatically Thursday due to U.S. demands that include adding a so-called “sunset clause” to NAFTA that would force negotiations of the $1 trillion pact every five years.

Trudeau also urged Senators to protect women’s rights in Mexico.

U.S. President Donald Trump says NAFTA, originally signed in 1994, has been a disaster for the United States and he has frequently threatened to scrap it unless major changes are made.
