Nafta talks have entered a new, intensive phase of discussions and will continue in the coming days, Canada’s foreign minister said after meeting with her U.S. and Mexican counterparts in Washington.

Chrystia Freeland, speaking to reporters Friday afternoon, said the tone of talks is positive and that the three countries are making progress. Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, speaking elsewhere the same day, said he hoped to get “positive news in the coming times” as talks continue.
