Not so fast: U.S. notes interest in re-joining TPP far from guaranteed

The TPP member nations have spent the 15 months since the country's exit renegotiating the deal and signed a massive multinational deal this year.

Japan Finance Minister Taro Aso also welcomed the US' decision to explore the possibility of rejoining the CPTPP. New Zealand's trade minister said his country is not blind to the benefits of free trade with the world's largest economy, but USA participation remains theoretical. Trump says the strikes are a "direct result" of Russia's failure to keep Syria's Assad from using chemical weapons RELATED: What the USA is doing in Syria The United States, along with assurance from France and the United Kingdom, launched a response Friday against the regime of Syrian leader Bashar al-Assad days after his government allegedly used chemical weapons on its citizens. "This will include the countries in TPP, which are very important", he said.

And then there's the other trillion-dollar question: "How receptive will the other 11 nations be to welcoming the USA back?"

Trump withdrew the United States from the TPP in one of his first acts as president but said Thursday that he would consider rejoining it if it were a "substantially better" deal than the one negotiated under former U.S. President Barack Obama.

Toshimitsu Motegi, Japan's minister in charge of TPP, also said it would be hard to change the deal, calling it a "balanced one, like fine glassware". We have agreements with several of them already.

"We've heard some of this discussion and debate about whether the USA might join before".

The Trans Pacific Partnership, a deal Trump once described as a "rape of our country", is a multicountry trade agreement in which the US participated under President Obama. If they were to choose to do that, that would trigger a process kicking off again.

Parker said other countries have also expressed an interest in joining, including Colombia, South Korea and Britain.
