Officials speaking for Mr. 'IVudeau ami Mr. Nixon alter Hie leaders nu't Friday indicated Cuuada has another assurance from Mr. Nixon that the United States is not demanding a continuing trade surplus with Canada in future years. But, in their briefings for reporters, they made it clear that Ihc leaders did not budge from bargaining positions taken durinj months of futile negotiations on H number of trade irritants Irelwcen the two countries. The talks broke off Feb. 9 after Washington officials decided there was no chance of settlement. Ronald Zieglor, White House press secretary, the two leaders agreed "to review their positions with a view to gelling the (alks slarled again.' l.aler, a Canadian official used almost the saraa words Both stressed Hint no time period for the reviews was discussed, though Mr. Ziegler sold the United Slates would like resumption pretty soon. Auto pact bypassed The Canadian official, who spoke on the under- standing that his name not be used, said the most con- tentious issue in the trade talks the auto pact was not dealt with specifically. Canadian otlicals said before the president's arrival Thursday they were looking forward to harder evi- dence from Mr. Nixon of tbe "fantastically new state- ment" Mr. Trudcau said he got from the president dur- ing their meeting in Washington last December. Mr. Trudcau said that was fl presidential assur- ance that the United States does not demand a con- tinuing trade surplus with Canada to help pay [or tho Investments Americans make in Canada. The- government won that confirmation when Mr. Nixon told a joint sitting of Parliament Friday that Washington does not "always want a surplus trade with Canada so that we could always export capital there." But the Canadian official noted the difference be- tween that long-run issne, on agreement seems complete, and the short-run trade dispute. In the short-run, be said, the United Stales is bl difficulty and wants its trading partners to help. He said Jfr. Trudeau offered sympathy and under- standing, [n Ihe trade lalks, Washington lias been seeking changes in trading arrangements with Canada, espe- cially the auto pact. have led to a Canadian trade surplus with Ihe United States in the last few years. Ottawa say.c that surplus may not he permanent, and that Canada needs to Fell more to the United States than it buys in order to earn extra U.S. dollars to pay interest and dividends to U.S. investors. Mr. Nixon said in his speech he understands that view since the United Slates sought freedom from de- pendence on European capital before the First World War. Aside from that pledge from the president, Cana- dian officials also wanted Nixon to help create an Atmosphere that could lead lo resumption of the trade talks. Asked whether he thought Mr. NLxori had met liuwfi hopes, one Canadian official said he is "happy with what ha said.'1 "We're all please. The discussions between Mr. Trudeau and Mr. Nix- on were very general over a range of bilateral and international issues.
