USA trade negotiators have reduced their demand for regional auto content under a reworked NAFTA trade deal to 75 percent from the 85 percent they had sought, the head of Mexico's automotive industry association (AMIA), said on Friday.

The vice president also said that the topic of funding for U.S. President Donald Trump's proposed wall on the U.S. border with Mexico did not come up in Pence's meeting with Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto.

There are concerns U.S. -Mexico relations could get rockier with Pena Nieto, a centrist, unable to seek a second six-year term due to Mexico's term limits.

This comes two months after an attempt to schedule a meeting in Washington between Pena Nieto and the United States president was called off due to Trump's harsh rhetoric regarding NAFTA and immigration.

Trump and Pena Nieto have yet to meet in person since Trump became president past year.

Trudeau said Saturday that there have been "positive momentum" in the NAFTA talks.

Pence also met with Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau to talk about the renegotiation of NAFTA.

Pence says he looks forward to discussing NAFTA and a broad range of issues between the two countries.

Responding to a question, Pence said that the United States message to Russian Federation is: "You're on the wrong side of history".

US President Donald Trump has threatened to kill NAFTA if it is not changed to secure better terms for USA workers and companies.

Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro was barred from attending the summit over his plans to hold a presidential election that the opposition is boycotting and that many foreign governments consider a sham.

And while Trump grapples with the ongoing Russian Federation investigation led by special counsel Robert Mueller, Pence sought to draw a bright line against Vladimir Putin's alliance with Syria following the suspected chemical attack.

The vice president appreciated the Summit of the Americas after Trump earlier that week declared plans to attend the function he might craft a response to the chemical attack, which is why US authorities state there's proof of Assad's involvement.

In condemning the US-led attack, Syrian President Bashar al-Assad insisted on Saturday that the missile strikes would only strengthen his nation's resolve to keep its fight against Western-backed terror groups and "crush terrorism in every inch of the nation". The vice president spoke to top Republican and Democratic leaders from his hotel suite before attending a banquet hosted by Peruvian President Martin Vizcarra.

For his part, Pence thanked Canada for backing the strikes and echoed Trump, British Prime Minister Theresa May and French President Emmanuel Macron in saying Syria's chemical-weapons facilities had been "degraded and crippled".
