Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
While visiting London, US Secretary of State Antony Blinken (on behalf of Joe "I'm Irish" Biden):

US has `no closer ally' than Britain but must protect Good Friday Agreement, says Blinken - Independent

But in between warm talk of a special relationship, there was a warning that the 1998 peace deal covering terms of the border between the UK and Ireland must be upheld despite the problems faced since Brexit.

"The United States remains a steadfast supporter of a secure and prosperous Northern Ireland, in which all communities have a voice and can enjoy the gains of the hard-won peace," Blinken said.

"Like several US presidents before him, President Biden has been unequivocal in his support for the Good Friday Agreement which was a historic achievement and one that we should protect."
