Mexico's president-elect thanks Trump for being respectful

The team of leftist Mexican president-elect Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador has resisted enshrining the 2013-14 opening of the oil and gas sector enacted by outgoing president Enrique Pena Nieto in the new NAFTA, people close to the talks say.

The president wrote in a tweet Saturday morning that a "big Trade Agreement with Mexico could be happening soon", adding that his administration's relationship with Mexico's new left-wing president is "getting closer by the hour".

The Mexican peso rose almost 1% on Friday after reports that the USA and Mexico were nearing a preliminary breakthrough on NAFTA, which would bring the two countries and Canada closer to resolving back-and-forth trade negotiations that have dragged on for more than a year. Mexican and USA representatives are meeting in Washington.

Meanwhile, Lopez Obrador said on Friday that progress was indeed being made in the renegotiation of the North American Free Trade Agreement, which Trump had dubbed a "disaster" for U.S. workers and industry.

Nafta talks are poised to spill into next week, pushing up against the goal for a deal by the end of the month, as the countries work out their issues before Canada is expected to rejoin the talks to update the three-nation agreement.

"We've adjusted very well the focus, but without changing the content, the substance, and we've arrived at a solution that should be satisfactory for everyone", Seade said.

"Nothing is done until everything is truly done", he said.

Trump prompted the NAFTA revamp more than a year ago, complaining the pact has benefited Mexico to the detriment of US workers and manufacturing. He hopes to reduce the U.S. trade deficit with lower-cost Mexico and claw back jobs, particularly in the automotive industry.
