to press reports, a top Mexican transportation official May
29 objected to U.S. regulations governing cross-border trucking
because he said they did not comply with NAFTA.
Mexican subsecretary of communications and transport, also said
the regulations are unfair because they only grant provisional
and not permanent operating authority to Mexican truckers.
both U.S. and Mexican officials said the objections could be
worked out and were not likely to delay the border opening,
scheduled for mid-summer.
