Trudeau urges more pressure on Venezuela, hopes for rapid solution to NAFTA renegotiations
Canada’s Trudeau urged leaders to step up pressure on Venezuela’s government on Saturday (April 14) and hoped for a rapid solution to the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) re-negotiations.
On the sidelines of the Summit of the Americas in Lima, Peru, Trudeau called for Maduro to allow humanitarian aid to reach Venezuelans facing food and medicine shortages amid a severe economic crisis.
He also said he hoped for a win win win solution to NAFTA renegotiations between the United States, Mexico and Canada.
At the same time, he said it was “unfortunate” to have to take military action to “degrade the use of chemical weapons by the murderous Assad regime” in Syria.
Finally, Trudeau said “Russia is not interested in being a positive actor in the global rules-based order.”
