Agreement in meeting on TPP trade deal - Mexican minister

According to Mexico's Secretary of Foreign Affairs Luis Videgaray, the talks are aimed at amending the existing agreement after US President Donald Trump pulled out from the free trade agreement in January.

When it comes to the members of the TPP, much of the focus remains on Japan, the world's third-largest economy.

Japanese Economy Minister Toshimitsu Motegi was reported yesterday as saying that ministers from the 11 TPP countries "agree in principle" on the trade pact, but did not elaborate.

"But we can't control the decisions of other countries. What's left are issues that are important to each country, or that they are particularly concerned about".

There had been confusion over the state of the deal.

President Donald Trump pulled the USA out of the TPP earlier this year.

Talks to revive the Trans-Pacific Partnership free trade pact have effectively collapsed after Canada pulled out.

Saudi Arabia and Kuwait advise citizens against travel to Lebanon
Kuwait has also asked its nationals to leave Lebanon immediately, citing safety considerations as the reason for the advisory. Lebanese President Michel Aoun has said he will not consider the premier's resignation until the two meet in person.

Trudeau told reporters the agreement would also help advance the countries' ongoing dialogue on human rights. Auto parts can cross the U.S.

"What is very much alive is the objective of open, principled, rules-based trade".

Instead, he has said he prefers bilateral agreements with individual nations, thus raising the stakes of US -driven bilats at APEC and ASEAN in coming days.

Ministerial talks on a communique for the APEC leaders were extended into a second day on Thursday in the face of US demands for changes to the language used concerning issues such as free trade and protectionism, officials at the talks said. "Certainly, I think it's months, if not years, ahead in terms of bringing everyone along".

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau did not show up for talks between the remaining 11 nations in the TPP. Similar concerns in Europe nearly scuttled the Canada-EU trade deal, which recently took provisional effect.

A change of government in New Zealand has also stoked fears that it may review its preceding administration's stance that strongly advocated for TPP.

"We've got to go hard on those Asian relationships", said Barton, who led McKinsey operations in Asia and South Korea for almost a decade.

BJP MLA Raj Purohit seeks ban on 'Padmavati'
The plea had alleged that the movie wrongly depicted Rani Padmavati in the movie and distorted and twisted historical facts. Some political leaders are of the view that the makers must show the film to historians.

He did not want to elaborate on what the sticking issue that reversed the done deal was, as it could prejudice ongoing negotiations. NAFTA talks have stalled on five contentious US proposals, with the next round set for later this month in Mexico.

Trudeau is travelling in the Asia-Pacific over the next week to strengthen Canada's ties to the region. He told business leaders November 6 that TPP was "not the right idea" and he envisioned easing trade restrictions in another way, outside the TPP framework, without going into detail.

The official said the countries should take more time to get the whole deal right - and to raise the bar.

Some countries remained cautious. "There is a spectrum - if we think negotiating with three is hard, imagine negotiating with 11", he said, an allusion to NAFTA talks, adding: "if you look from a Canadian perspective, it's never been a better time to diversify".

"I think we just have to have irons in many fires".

He said, "America was the first victim of globalization and that is why Trump is trying to lure them back and said 'America First'".
