Mexico's incoming president wants to work with Trump to end NAFTA talks anti-establishment alliance

But they stalled in the run-up to the July 1 presidential election in Mexico, which produced a landslide victory for veteran leftist Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador.

The Minister of foreign Affairs of Canada Chrystia Freeland and her colleagues - Finance Minister bill Morneau and the Minister of global trade Jim Carr. - this week will travel to Mexico city to meet with the future Mexican leader a week later after President trump has voiced the idea of a separate economic deals with Canada and Mexico.

Negotiations to reshape the 1994 trade accord were launched last August at the behest of U.S. President Donald Trump, who blames NAFTA for the U.S. trade deficit with Mexico, and argues the deal has caused jobs to move south of the border.

On Wednesday, Lopez Obrador will meet with Canadian Foreign Minister Chrystia Freeland in his transition offices. The U.S.is now gearing up for mid-term congressional and senate elections in November.

Trump also said in the letter that he was prepared to address economic development and security issues that drive migration to the United States. This doesn't herald the beginning of a split into separate bilateral deals, but an effort by the Americans to take a different tack in negotiations.

The United States is also exploring the possibility of imposing tariffs on auto imports, though Guajardo said it was too early to speculate on how that would play out.

In his own missive, the incoming president said Mexico wants ties founded on "respect, friendship and focused on development cooperation", and said that the more Mexico gets developed, the fewer people will have to leave the country in search of work.

Trump did not mention Canada in his comments. For Mexico, the expansion is part of a push to diversify its trading partners in the wake of Trump's previous threats to pull out of NAFTA. Shortly after Mr. Trump's inauguration, the Americans presented the Canadians with what the official described as a back-of-the-napkin agreement that Jared Kushner, the President's son-in-law and presidential adviser, had purportedly reached with Mexico's Mr. Videgaray.
