He complains, after a few days of meetings to organize the talks, that Mexico and Canada are being very hard and the treaty may have to be terminated.

In response to US President Donald Trump's tweet asking Mexico to pay for the border wall, the Mexican government hit back at US saying it not pay for any proposed wall.

On Sunday, Trump also blasted Mexico and Canada on Twitter for being "very difficult" in the renegotiation of NAFTA.

He tweeted referring to the NAFTA trade negotiations that both Mexico and Canada were being very hard.

"We don't think it would be the right path or a viable path to terminate the agreement just when we're in negotiations", he added.

Last week, Trump threatened a government shutdown if Congress didn't fund the border wall. "It may be through reimbursement but one way or another Mexico will pay for the wall", he said at a White House press conference.

Mexico - which sells 80% of its exports to the United States - is not interested in sweeping changes, and Canada is wary. Trump said the construction was needed because "Mexico has a tremendous crime problem, tremendous".

"We're in the process of renegotiating the (NAFTA) deal".

"He hasn't said they're not, either", Sanders said. "I am willing to say that we will work it out, but that means it will come out in the wash and that is okay".

Three-month implied volatility for the peso-a measure of its expected swings against the dollar over the next 90 days-has fallen to near the lowest level in two years.

Trump has repeatedly called the agreement a "disaster" that exported United States jobs to Mexico, while Mexico has dismissed his rhetoric as a negotiating tactic playing to his U.S. base.
