MEXICO CITY, Jan 6 (Reuters) - Mexico’s government said on Thursday a U.S proposal to allow Mexican long-haul trucks to move cargo on U.S. roads was a positive first step in resolving an ongoing trade dispute between the two countries.
Humberto Trevino, Mexico’s deputy transport minister, said the government would review the U.S. proposal and respond with observations by Monday. Once an agreement is reached, a series of retaliatory tariffs Mexico imposed on U.S goods would be lifted, Trevino told Reuters in an interview.
“It could be within weeks,” he said. (Reporting by Mica Rosenberg, Editing by Sandra Maler)
