Nafta agreement could come in weeks, say Pence and Trudeau

  • U.S. Vice President Mike Pence receives a Venezuela's flag pin from Venezuelan opposition leader Antonio Ledezma during a meeting at the residence of the U.S. ambassador in Lima Peru Friday

Pence said that the USA acted on information from the intelligence community and allies, and they had a high degree of confidence that 'at a minimum, ' chlorine was used in the attack, and possibly sarin.

President Trump reportedly tried to block Vice President Pence's national security adviser pick because he previously worked on anti-Trump ads for a conservative group.

Vice President Mike Pence said the United States did the morally right thing when it attacked Syrian chemical weapons facilities in retaliation for an attack on civilians - and it could happen again.

The unified front was presented during a highly anticipated meeting between Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and U.S. Vice-President Mike Pence on the sidelines of the Summit of the Americas in Peru's capital.

Pence also met with Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau to talk about the renegotiation of NAFTA.

Tyson Fury Signs With Warren, Set For June 9th Return
The smart money is on Deontay Wilder - but Tyson Fury might just have other ideas, having just confirmed a return to the ring. The unbeaten heavyweight has not boxed since ending Wladimir Klitschko's reign as world champion in November 2015.

Pence said he was "very hopeful" that Mexico, Canada and the US were close to an agreement on the negotiated trade pact. Maduro has been barred from the summit over his plans to hold a presidential election that the opposition is boycotting and that many foreign governments consider a sham.

USA negotiators discussing changes to the North American Free Trade Agreement also recently floated the idea that 40 percent of automotive production must occur in areas paying wages of between $16 to $19 per hour.

But US relations with Mexico had soured in recent weeks as US President Donald Trump has sought to link the trade talks to Mexican efforts to stop migrants illegally crossing the border into the US, and ordered National Guard troops to the border. Pence, meanwhile, tends to be more scripted in his exchanges and frequently glanced down at highlighted index cards as he spoke to Latin American leaders here.

Pence also said funding of a wall on the US-Mexico border didn't come up during a meeting with Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto.

Shortly before Trump's address to the nation Friday night, Pence was whisked away from the summit in his motorcade so he could return to his hotel to inform congressional leaders of the pending missile strikes.
