Sheryl Gay Stolberg and Sewell Chan reported in today’s New York Times that, “President Obama and President Lee Myung-bak of South Korea failed to reach an agreement Thursday on a long-awaited free-trade agreement, saying they had decided instead to give their negotiators more time to work out differences, which revolved around Korean imports of American autos and beef.

“The two men said at a news conference that they expected a deal to be reached soon. By soon, Mr. Obama said, he did not mean months.

“‘We want this to be done in a matter of weeks,’ he said.”
