BRUSSELS (AP) -- President Barack Obama says some countries have legitimate questions about whether budding free trade deals will benefit them in the long-term.

But Obama is cautioning skeptics to wait to see what's negotiated before jumping to conclusions.

Obama is speaking at a news conference with European Union leaders in Brussels. The United States and the EU are working on the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership, which seeks to remove trade barriers between the 28-nation bloc..

Obama says some suspicions about the so-called TTIP have been unjustified. He says he's fought his entire political career for consumer and environmental protections. He says he doesn't intend to sign legislation that would weaken those protections.
