Britain expects Biden’s state visit to mark 25th anniversary of peace deal NewsPipa

British diplomats are aiming for President Joe Biden’s first official visit in connection with the 25th anniversary of the Good Friday Agreement next year.

King planned to host Biden during a possible trip to Europe to celebrate the 1998 peace deal that helped end 30 years of violence in Northern Ireland.

Biden, who has Irish roots, is proud of the U.S. role in brokering the deal and is eager to visit the islands to celebrate the anniversary.

Diplomatic sources said it would be an ideal time to invite Mr. Biden for a state visit.

However, due to a boycott by the DUP, Stormont Executive is now bankrupt, raising concerns about the level of celebration.

The British government remained optimistic that power-sharing could resume by Memorial Day.

Liz Truss met the president at the UN summit in New York on Wednesday.

But she wasn’t allowed to visit the White House, which Boris Johnson received last year.

Biden met the Queen at Windsor Castle after visiting Cornwall for the G7 summit last June, but it wasn’t the pomp and ceremony of a state visit.

His predecessor, Donald Trump, received an official visit in 2019.

At the meeting, Truss tried to reassure Biden about plans for the Brexit Protocol after U.S. officials expressed concern about potential risks to the Good Friday deal.

Preparations for the meeting were frosty.

Biden and Truss were meeting after the president tweeted while he was discussing economic policy: “I’m sick of the trickle-down economy.”

“It never worked out,” he said, and was seen as a rejection of the Prime Minister.

Her official spokesman said it was “absurd” to suggest that Mr Biden was criticizing British policy, arguing that countries face different economic challenges.

The White House also reinforced the importance the protocol plays in a meeting with Biden ahead of the meeting.

US National Security Advisor Jake Sullivan has revealed that Biden will talk to Truss in “some detail.”

However, the tone after the meeting was very different, and the debate over the protocol was downplayed.

According to Downing Street, the two leaders had only a “very brief discussion” of the protocol during their 75-minute meeting.

An official spokesman for the prime minister said that Ukraine “dominated” the wider conversation and that the meeting “exceeded” the scheduled time.

He said the two last discussed the protocol after one of the president’s team brought it up, and that Biden didn’t seek reassurance.

A spokesman said the atmosphere at the talks was “warm” and that the Anglo-American trade deal was not discussed.

According to a Downing Street spokesman, when they met at the UN General Assembly, both sides agreed that peace must be protected and maintained.

“On the Northern Ireland Protocol, the Prime Minister and President Biden agreed that safeguarding the Belfast (Good Friday) Agreement and preserving the interests of peace in Northern Ireland must be a priority.”
