    Joe Biden has “deep” concerns that a UK-EU trade row could endanger peace in Northern Ireland, his national security adviser Jake Sullivan has told the BBC.

    The US president will tell leaders at the G7 summit that gains made since the Good Friday Agreement must be protected, Mr Sullivan said.

    The UK and EU are in dispute over checks on goods going between Great Britain and Northern Ireland.

    If no compromise is reached, there are fears of potential violence in Northern Ireland.

    President Biden will be arriving in Cornwall on Wednesday for the G7 summit, which starts on Friday – his first foreign trip since he took office.

    In This Story: Ireland

    Ireland is an island in the North Atlantic. It is separated from Great Britain to its east by the North Channel, the Irish Sea, and St George’s Channel.

    Geopolitically, Ireland is divided between the Republic of Ireland (officially named Ireland), which covers five-sixths of the island, and Northern Ireland, which is part of the United Kingdom. As of 2016, 4.8 million people live in the Republic of Ireland, and 1.8 million live in Northern Ireland.

    The Irish climate is influenced by the Atlantic Ocean and thus very moderate, and winters are milder than expected for such a northerly area, although summers are cooler than those in continental Europe. Rainfall and cloud cover are abundant.

    A strong Irish culture exists, as expressed through Gaelic games, Irish music and the Irish language. The island’s culture shares many features with that of Great Britain, including the English language, and sports such as association football, rugby, horse racing, and golf.
