Mexico wants to end to a tariff dispute over steel and aluminum with the United States prior to signing off on a reworked trade agreement with its northern neighbor, Mexican Economy Minister Ildefonso Guajardo said on Thursday.

“Now, what are we going to do here? A deal before we get to signing, to clearly get rid of all these … tariff-related aggressions,” Guajardo said on Mexican television after referring to the steel and aluminum dispute.

Mexico and the United States last week said they had reached a deal after more than a year’s negotiations to revamp the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA).

Canada, the other NAFTA signatory, is still locked in discussions with Washington to see if it can join the accord.
