Rishi Sunak, the British Prime Minister, has invited US President Joe Biden to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the Good Friday Agreement in Northern Ireland next month.
This visit by Biden has long been anticipated, and the invitation comes after Sunak's new deal with the EU, the Windsor Framework, aimed at resolving Northern Ireland's post-Brexit issues.
The visit would signal the end of the isolationist stance taken by the UK during the Trump administration, with Biden being a vocal supporter of the Good Friday Agreement, which helped end 30 years of violent conflict in Northern Ireland.
However, concerns have been raised about Biden's $430bn green subsidies package, which includes tax credits for green technologies.
According to Reuters, Sunak said that the UK had already raised its concerns about the measures in the Inflation Reduction Act, which has caused friction with European economies, including Britain.
Nevertheless, Sunak is keen to invite Biden formally as the US president has been a vocal supporter of the Good Friday Agreement, which ended three decades of political violence in Northern Ireland.
Biden's visit to Northern Ireland would also impact the relationship between the UK and the US, following tensions caused by Brexit.
Reports from The Guardian suggest that Sunak and Biden have indicated to each other their intentions to meet multiple times over the next few months, with Sunak accepting Biden's invite to visit him in Washington DC in June.
