U.S. won’t be pushed

WASHINGTON—The U.S. government won’t be rushed in making a decision on the long-delayed Keystone pipeline, Secretary of State John Kerry said today.
At a news conference following meetings with Foreign Affairs minister John Baird and Mexican Foreign Secretary Jose Antonio Meade, Kerry said there’s a process that must be followed in the pipeline decision.

“An analysis will be made with respect to the national interest ultimately and we’re just not at that point yet . . . they haven’t finished it,” Kerry said.
Baird spent the last three days in Washington pushing for a decision because he says the industry can’t be left in limbo.
