U.S. intends to reach preliminary Nafta deal by mid-April

The U.S. President Donald Trump's administration intends to agree a preliminary Nafta deal until mid-April, Bloomberg reported.

The White House wants the leaders of Canada and Mexico to join the U.S. in declaring common points of the renewed agreement at the Summit of the Americas, which begins on April 13, the agency said citing three people familiar with the talks. At the same time, discussion of the details of the agreement and development of legal documents will continue.

Earlier Donald Trump has threatened to break the agreement if Mexico does not stop illegal migration and drug trafficking through its territory. The revision of NAFTA terms was one of Mr. Trump's pre-election promises. Negotiations on amending the agreement, uniting Canada, the United States and Mexico, began in 2017.
