  • Bloomberg Quicktake: Now published this video item, entitled “Boris Johnson Gets Ready to Meet Biden Ahead of G-7 Summit in Cornwall” – below is their description.

    Prime Minister Boris Johnson is set to meet Joe Biden for the first time Thursday ahead of the Group of Seven summit that the U.K. is hosting. Leaders will discuss Covid, China and climate change, and a draft communique seen by Bloomberg shows them committing to 1 billion extra vaccine doses over the next year to try and end the pandemic.

    The U.K. is seeking to project an image of rejuvenated status after its departure from the European Union, though there are plenty of tensions over its post-Brexit trading arrangements for Northern Ireland that could bubble over into the meeting.

  • 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.
