US mulls wider trade pact with Latin America beyond NAFTA: John Kerry

WASHINGTON--The United States is exploring the idea of setting up a wider regional trade pact with Latin America, Secretary of State John Kerry revealed on Sunday.

“I believe we could look to a stronger set of initiatives between Canada, the United States, Mexico particularly, and the rest of Latin America. We could do more within the hemisphere,” Kerry told CNN Espanol.

He told the network's Andres Oppenheimer and the Miami Herald newspaper that he could foresee a wider pact beyond the North American Free Trade Agreement, which groups the United States, Canada and Mexico.

The United States already also has economic ties with 12 nations in Latin America, he said, adding “we're very strongly connected. We have six different trade agreements that constitute those 12 countries including the Caribbean.”
