US Vice President Mike Pence and Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau discussed ongoing trade disagreements between their two countries on Friday on the sidelines of a gathering of US governors.

President Donald Trump plans to renegotiate the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) between the United States, Canada and Mexico with talks to begin in mid-August.Trump feels the two allies and neighbors are taking advantage of lax American trade policies.

Pence and Trudeau met on the fringes of the National Governors Association meeting in Providence, Rhode Island.



"On behalf of President Trump, the vice president recognized the importance of the beneficial US trade and investment relationship with Canada, while expressing the need to work together to address lingering trade disagreements," a White House statement said.
