Biden warns UK against breaking Brexit deal

Washington, Sep 18 (TIWN) Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden has warned the UK against breaking the Brexit deal, saying he will not allow peace in Northern Ireland to become a "casualty" if he is elected in November, the media reported.

Taking to Twitter on Wednesday, Biden said: "We can't allow the Good Friday Agreement that brought peace to Northern Ireland to become a casualty of Brexit.

"Any trade deal between the US and UK must be contingent upon respect for the Agreement and preventing the return of a hard border. Period."

The Good Friday Agreement refers to a pair of deals signed on April 1998 that ended most of the violence of the Troubles, a political conflict in Northern Ireland that had been ongoing since the 1960s.

It served as a major development in the Northern Ireland peace process of the 1990s.
