OTTAWA (Reuters) – Canada wants negotiations to renew the trilateral NAFTA trade pact to be concluded as quickly as possible, Foreign Minister Chrystia Freeland said on Saturday, amid signs of progress after months of delays.

Freeland, speaking to reporters on a conference call, also said she was prepared to join top-level talks on the future of the North American Free Trade Agreement at any point. Mexican and U.S. ministers have spent the last week trying to work out their nations’ differences.
