Canada is preparing for the possibility that the U.S. will pull out of the North America Free Trade Agreement, government officials said on Thursday. However, Trump said he was willing to be "a little bit flexible" about the deal until after Mexico's presidential election in July. "Guess what? Mexico's paying".

Shortly after Trump's inauguration previous year, plans for a meeting between the president and his Mexican counterpart fell apart over the issue of paying for the wall.

Secretary Guajardo, who is visiting the USA capital for talks, emphasized that "neither today nor at any moment during the negotiations the wall was topic of NAFTA discussions".

Freeland said Canada will enter the sixth round of NAFTA talks, to be held in Montreal Jan. 23 to 28, with a spirit of good will, and says it's "absolutely possible" to have a positive outcome.

But while Champagne was talking tough, Freeland said she remains hopeful a new NAFTA deal beneficial to all three countries can be reached.

While she puts the chances of US withdrawal at 50-50, "it's too early to throw in the towel on these negotiations", Cutler said.
