Mexico City, Mexico — Mexico’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs says that the country must be prepared to say no to the renegotiated NAFTA agreement if it does not suit the needs of Mexico.
Mexico’s head of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Luis Videgaray says, “Mexico must be prepared to say no, to get off the table and if it is necessary to get out of the renegotiation of the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) if it does not suit the interests of the country.”
Upon appearing before the Senate, the chancellor explained that Mexico is negotiating constructively and in good faith, but this should not be misunderstood by a decision to abandon national causes and interests.
He explained that Mexico is bigger than NAFTA and that the disintegration of the agreement affects the United States more.
Companies that constitute the US Chamber of Commerce warned that if Donald Trump withdraws the country from NAFTA, they will challenge it in court.
Thomas Donohue, head of the Chamber said, “We have reached a critical point and there is no choice but to sound the warning bells.”
