US won't rule out renegotiating WTO deal: Mnuchin

AFP  |  Baden-Baden (Germany) 

The United States is prepared to renegotiate long-standing deals including those within the framework of the World Trade Organization, Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin said today.

"We want to reexamine certain agreements, we have talked about reexamining NAFTA," he told journalists, referring to the North American Agreement between Canada, Mexico and the United States.

"We think there are parts of the WTO that are not being enforced, and will look to aggressively enforce things in the interest of American workers, and to the extent the agreements are old agreements and need to be renegotiated, we'll consider that as well," he added.
