President Joe Biden’s administration has a number of concerns about Mexico’s performance and commitment to its free trade deal with the U.S. and will discuss them with the nation in the coming weeks, America’s top negotiator said.

The U.S. will meet in the next few weeks with its partners in the U.S. Mexico Canada Agreement for an annual review, Trade Representative Katherine Tai told senators at a hearing on Wednesday. Tai said that she’s committed to using all available tools to make sure that the nations are living up to their promises in the deal.
