Mexico ratified the new North American trade agreement Wednesday June 19th, making the country the first to give it final approval despite recent tension with the US, according to AFP.

The deal passed in the Mexican Senate with 114 votes in favor and just four against, sending what the economy ministry called "a clear message in favor of an open economy and deepening economic integration in the region."
