Obama Vows To Expand North America-Asia Trade Agreements
Made the comment at meeting with North American leaders
US President Barack Obama has vowed to expand trade agreements between North America and Asia, despite concerns within his own political party.
Ending a day of talks with the leaders of Mexico and Canada, Mr Obama said they must keep up their "competitive advantage".
The three countries are negotiating a major Pacific trade deal.
But Mr Obama's Democratic allies oppose the agreement amid concerns that American jobs could be lost.
