Sky News published this video item, entitled “US-UK visit: Biden asked about his feelings over Northern Ireland border arrangements” – below is their description.

The US and UK leaders sat in the Oval Office and talked about the priorities for their meeting including freedom to trade across Northern Ireland, the new AUKUS pact and the climate funding.

President Biden told reporters: “I feel very strongly about those {protocols}… and I would not at all like to see a change in the Irish accords, with the end result having a closed border again.”

That concern was responded to by his UK counterpart, adding ‘we are completely at one’ over the border arrangements in Belfast.

  • 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.
