US, Mexico Agree to Extend Talks on Energy Dispute Past Minimum

  • Trade deal would let US request arbitration as of this week
  • Biden administration hopes to keep positive momentum of talks

The Biden administration will continue consultations with Mexico over the nation’s energy policy after completing the minimum time period required for talks under their trade deal rather than immediately requesting arbitration.

While Monday marked the end of an initial 75-day window to come to an agreement before the US has the right to ask for a dispute resolution panel, the 2020 US-Mexico-Canada Agreement on trade allows negotiations to be extended with the agreement of all parties.
