If Brexit violates the Northern Ireland Treaty, Nancy Pelosi warns of ‘no chance’ of US-UK trade deal


Pelosi said in a statement on Wednesday, “If Britain violates that international treaties and Brexit weaken the Good Friday agreement, there will be no chance of the US-UK trade agreement being fulfilled.”
His comments come the same week that the UK proposed, in the words of a cabinet minister, to “break international law in a very specific and limited way”.

The British government on Wednesday published the Internal Markets Bill, which it claims is designed to ensure that trade between the four countries of the United Kingdom will remain unaffected if Brexit does not occur.

Boris Johnson's government is threatening to break international law.  It can perform well

If the legislation is voted on by an Act of Parliament, then UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson effectively overwrites the elements of the Brexit deal signed with London last year. In particular, it would weaken a portion of the deal that exists, eliminating the need for a rigid border between the Northern Ireland Protocol and Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland, according to the 1998 Good Friday Agreement.

The agreement is of particular interest to American Democrats because of former President Bill Clinton’s role in bringing together the various sides of the divide in the North.

Pelosi’s statement would be a major setback for Britain, as several leading Brexiters have claimed that the ability to sign international trade deals would be the most obvious nuisance of leaving the European Union. As a member state and part of the EU Single Market and Customs Union, the UK could not negotiate its own trade deals and was instead represented at the World Trade Organization by a representative of the European Union.

A trade deal with the US has repeatedly been cited as the most important, given the size of the US economy, given the historical relationship between the UK and the US, and the fact that the US is Britain’s largest single trading partner. Despite no formal business agreement.
