DANANG, Vietnam (AP) — Leaders of the countries participating in a Pacific Rim trade pact abandoned by President Donald Trump have agreed to meet and work out details of a deal.

Malaysian Prime Minister Najib Razak said Friday that he was "reasonably confident" the 11 countries remaining in the Trans-Pacific Partnership would have a basic agreement.

His comments to a business conference on the sidelines of the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation forum followed conflicting reports that a basic agreement had been reached.

Najib said officials met until 3 a.m. Friday trying to bridge their differences and produce a statement for the leaders of their countries to endorse.
