Biden: US-UK trade deal won't happen if London violates Northern Ireland deal

LONDON (Reuters) – US Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden has warned the UK to abide by the Northern Ireland peace deal or the UK-US post-Brexit trade deal could fail.

“We cannot allow the Good Friday agreement that brought peace to Northern Ireland to fall victim to Brexit,” Biden tweeted.

“Any trade deal between the US and the UK must be subject to the agreement and avoidance of a hard border (between the Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland). Period.”
