Biden-backing Senator warns Lord Frost about the ‘negative impact’ of the NI Protocol debate.

Lord Frost has been told by a BIDEN-supporting senator that the present discussion over the Northern Ireland Protocol will “damage” the Belfast Good Friday Agreement.

Senator Chris Murphy of Connecticut, 48, and a group of US representatives met with Britain’s Brexit team in London Tuesday, including Minister Lord David Frost, 56. The Irish-American Democrat, who was once dubbed a “dark horse candidate” for President on Capitol Hill, issued a warning to the UK’s negotiating team on how to proceed with the Northern Ireland Protocol.

“Thanks to @USAmbUK and the whole team at Embassy London for hosting me to discuss with British officials about bipartisan congressional concern that the Northern Ireland Protocol debate would harm the Belfast Good Friday Agreement,” Mr Murphy wrote on Twitter.

However, a member of the US Foreign Relations Committee shared a photo of the US delegation seated next to Lord Frost, Northern Ireland Secretary Brandon Lewis, 50, and Prime Minister’s foreign policy advisor John Bew, 41, on social media.

Before arriving in the United Kingdom, the Democratic Senator wrote a letter alongside Republican Pat Toomey, 60, urging Boris Johnson, 57, to “convey Congress’ strong concern in ensuring that the Good Friday Agreement is protected in any future arrangements.”

Senator Joe Biden’s party reiterated the position’s cross-partisan support in Washington during his visit to Stormont.

He said Stormont, “I am here on behalf of Republicans and Democrats in the United States Senate who are keen in sustaining our partnership with Northern Ireland.”

Today, I’m in London for consultations on the Northern Ireland Protocol and other concerns of mutual security. Thank you for meeting today, Brexit Minister David Frost, Northern Ireland Secretary Brandon Lewis, and Prime Minister Johnson’s foreign policy advisor John Bew. pic.twitter.comm7mOCnv4k2 Despite Murphy’s nonpartisan message, SDLP leader Colum Eastwood, 38, expressed his views on how 79-year-old President Joe Biden views Brexit and the Protocol.

“The US administration and President Joe Biden @POTUS are solidly behind us in defending the North from the catastrophic repercussions of Brexit,” the Foyle MP wrote on Twitter.

Mr Murphy’s remarks came as Lord Frost and his 55-year-old EU counterpart, Maros Sefcovic, meet.

Article 16 of the Northern Ireland Protocol has been threatened by the UK government.

Although such a move would put some of the agreements on hold, it is possible. “Brinkwire News Summary.”
