Biden warns UK about breaking deal with EU

Democratic nominee for United States president Joe Biden warned the United Kingdom that it must respect the terms of the Brexit withdrawal agreement if it wants a trade deal with the US. He stressed that the potential changes to the agreement could jeopardize the relations between Northern Ireland and the rest of the country, as the post-Brexit border checks in Northern Ireland have been a controversial negotiating point between the UK and the European Union.

"We can’t allow the Good Friday Agreement that brought peace to Northern Ireland to become a casualty of Brexit. Any trade deal between the U.S. and U.K. must be contingent upon respect for the Agreement and preventing the return of a hard border. Period," Biden said in a tweet. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi issued a similar warning, stating that "there will be absolutely no chance of UK-US free trade agreement passing the Congress" if London "violates its international agreements."
