Obama wants all three trade deals approved - Kirk
WASHINGTON, March 9
WASHINGTON, March 9 (Reuters) - President Barack Obama wants to work with Congress to win approval of three long-delayed trade deals with South Korea, Panama and Colombia, U.S. Trade Representative Ron Kirk said on Wednesday.
"Our goal is to have all three agreements, with their outstanding issues addressed, approved by Congress," Kirk said in prepared testimony for the Senate Finance Committee.
The administration wants to solve remaining issues blocking the Panama and Colombia pacts "as quickly as possible this year and submit them to Congress immediately thereafter," he said.
