It was this Thursday, June 10, 2021 The first head-to-face between US President Joe Biden and British Prime Minister Boris Johnson. Tensions fed by London with the EU on the protocol involving Northern Ireland worry the US president.

Since 2016, the year of the Brexit and the election of Donald Trump , the Anglo-American relationship was quite paradoxical. London and Washington were, of course, in phase in a kind of nationalist drive, but in doing so, the two allies also turned his back to a tradition since 1945: making the United Kingdom a bridge between Europe and America.

Boris Johnson was not unhappy with having Donald Trump on his side when negotiating Brexit. But it may not have expected that his successor, Joe Biden, would be ... of Irish origin. And very proud to be! However, the Irish question is, precisely, the one that currently envours the application of the agreements signed with Brussels.

One of the Times, Thursday, June 10, 2021, planted the decor well. Biden accuses Johnson to ignite the Irish tensions, titrated the London daily.

In issue, an icy diplomatic exchange that would have occurred between the Minister of Brexit, Lord Frost, and the US diplomat Yael Lempert. Washington does not appreciate London's attempts to return to the North Irish protocol adopted as part of Brexit, which avoids the return of a border with Ireland but disrupts supplies between Great Britain and the province.

US pressures

In the diplomatic note read by Mrs. Lempert, the White House is strongly pressure for the United Kingdom to find a negotiated agreement, even at unpopular compromise price.

The British press explained this Thursday that agricultural issues are in particular in the balance. The American administration will thus condition the signature of a free trade agreement with London to respect by the British European rules on agricultural standards.

Starting his journey by a head-to-head with Johnson, the American president gives, certainly, a pledge to the old special relationship that unites the two countries.

The two leaders should be able to sign a new Atlantic Charter on the model of that signed by Winston Churchill and Franklin D. Roosevelt 80 years ago, to reaffirm the shared values.

But in its revival project transatlantic links to meet the challenges posed by China, Russia and others, Joe Biden wishes a united European front. No pirate ally in the middle of the ocean.
