A member of the Mexican negotiation team checks her phone during a lunch break at the hotel where the seventh round of NAFTA talks involving the United States, Mexico and Canada takes place, in Mexico City, Mexico February 28, 2018.

The latest round of talks to revamp the North American Free Trade Agreement will conclude without a trilateral statement from the United States, Canada and Mexico, like the last round, two sources with knowledge of the matter said on Monday.

The latest talks, which began in Mexico City last week, have been clouded by U.S. President Donald Trump‘s plan to impose tariffs on steel and aluminum imports. Canada and Mexico have threatened retaliation unless they are exempted.
