Mexico president-elect writes Trump, urging swift conclusion to NAFTA talksBy Sharay Angulo MEXICO CITY (Reuters) – Mexican President-elect Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador sent U.S. President Donald Trump a letter calling for a swift conclusion to NAFTA negotiations and pledging his wish to reset relations between the two countries, Mexican officials said on Sunday. The letter was delivered during a recent meeting in Mexico with senior U.S. officials, and details were disclosed once Trump had received it, said Lopez Obrador, a leftist who won Mexico’s July 1 presidential election in a landslide. In a news conference with Lopez Obrador, Marcelo Ebrard, the president-elect’s proposed foreign minister, read a copy of the letter, which states that the incoming administration’s aim is to “start a new chapter in the relationship between Mexico and the United States, based on mutual respect.” Lopez Obrador, who takes office on December 1, also called for the countries to redouble their efforts to wrap up talks to modernize the 24-year-old North American Free Trade Agreement, which includes Canada.
