WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The United States is close to a deal to remove tariffs on steel and aluminum imports from Canada and Mexico, which could help the three countries' trade pact get ratified in the U.S. Congress, according to media reports on Friday.

Bloomberg said the effective date for removing the tariffs was the outstanding issue. Politico reported an agreement could be reached as early as Friday although negotiations were ongoing.
