US President and British Prime Minister agreed during an allied summit in England to a path toward reopening travel between the United States and the United Kingdom.

Iran PressEurope: US President Joe Biden and UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson have met for the first time with Biden bringing a grave Brexit warning for the British premier.

Biden met Johnson Thursday, on his first trip abroad since taking office, in the English seaside resort of Carbis Bay ahead of a G7 summit.

He arrived there intending to call on Johnson to prevent a row with the European Union from imperiling the delicate peace in Northern Ireland. 

A 1998 peace deal, known as the Good Friday Agreement, ended the core conflict in Northern Ireland, but sporadic clashes and acts of militancy/terrorism continue.

Senior US diplomats in London have already warned Johnson’s Brexit negotiator Lord Frost that he would increase tensions in Northern Ireland if he did not compromise with the EU over an impasse about border checks.

During a meeting in England ahead of the Group of 7 summits that starts Friday, the two leaders, despite their political and personal differences, highlighted new opportunities for collaboration on major global challenges, including climate change.

Joe Biden said the 90-minute meeting with Boris Johnson was very productive.
