US calls for smaller deficits in new NAFTA talks



The US government says trade deficits and market access will top the agenda as it renegotiated trade terms with Mexico and Canada.

 
US President Donald Trump has described the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) as a "disaster" and ordered fresh talks earlier this year.


The objectives have been released in advance of the start of meetings with Canada and Mexico next month.


Economists have warned that reaching the goals might be difficult.
