“Canada and Mexico are close friends and longtime partners. We share common goals, strong people-to-people ties, and a mutually beneficial trading relationship that is the envy of the world — reflected in our joint effort to update the North American Free Trade Agreement for the 21st century,” Trudeau said in a statement.

The sea change in Mexican politics comes as talks to renegotiate the NAFTA pact have stalled over attempts to satisfy US President Donald Trump’s demands.
