G7 summit 2021: Joe Biden accuses Boris Johnson of ‘inflaming’ Irish tensions
President Biden ordered US officials to issue Boris Johnson with an extraordinary diplomatic rebuke for imperilling the Northern Ireland peace process over Brexit, The Times can reveal.
Yael Lempert, America’s most senior diplomat in Britain, told Lord Frost, the Brexit minister, at a meeting that the government was “inflaming” tensions in Ireland and Europe with its opposition to checks at ports in the province.
In a move without recent precedent, Lempert said she had been told to take the step of issuing London with a demarche, a formal diplomatic reprimand seldom exchanged between allies.
The Brexit minister, Lord Frost, met Maros Sefcovic, the European Commission vice-president yesterday but the talks broke up without agreement
