The U.K. is hoping to resume its free-trade negotiations with the Biden administration after the U.S. midterm elections later this year, the minister leading the push said Wednesday.

With talks halted since Joe Biden took office last year, the U.K. is for now focusing on state-level negotiations, laying the regulatory groundwork for a future bilateral trade agreement, Secretary of State for International Trade Anne-Marie Trevelyan said in an interview in Jerusalem.
