British conservatives rebuke Biden after Brexit comments

Mr Eastwood replied: "We want a trade deal and we want to be able to trade right around the world, but the warning is clear: if you mess about with the Good Friday Agreement and all of our political progress, there will be no trade deal". Some likened the remarks to meddling in UK-EU negotiations.

At issue is the latest bit of Brexit brinksmanship from Westminster, in which the British House of Commons on Monday passed the so-called Internal Market Bill, in direct violation of its EU Withdrawal Agreement.

Mr Mick Mulvaney told The Financial Times that "no one is interested in seeing a hard border between the republic and Northern Ireland" and "the one thing I keep trying to assure is on the front of everybody's minds is avoiding a border by accident".

The Democratic candidate hinted a UK-US trade deal would be in jeopardy if Westminster voted to change the terms of its European Union withdrawal agreement.

"We can't allow the Good Friday Agreement that brought peace to Northern Ireland to become a casualty of Brexit", Biden said in a tweet on Wednesday. "And it is proportionate", he said.

"We don't need lectures on Northern Ireland peace deals from Mr Biden", former Conservative Party Leader Iain Duncan Smith said in an interview.

It also doesn't hurt that the target in this case is the pro-Trump Johnson.

Harsimrat Kaur Badal resigns from Union Cabinet over farm Bills
The Shiromani Akali Dal has three members in the Rajya Sabha Naresh Gujral, Balwinder Singh Bhunder and Sukhdev Singh Dhindsa. BJP's previous ally Shiv Sena has supported the bills, while BJD sent them to the Parliamentary Standing Committee.

In 1993, then-Prime Minister John Major declared that the British government had "no selfish strategic or economic interest in Northern Ireland" and would accept the decision of the majority of the people of Northern Ireland about whether they wanted to remain part of the U.K. The British government reaffirmed that position in the Good Friday Agreement.

Raab is meeting US politicians including House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, who has warned that Britain won't secure a much sought-after trade deal with the United States - which would require congressional approval - if it undermines the peace accord. They say such a reneging on an worldwide agreement would damage the nation's trustworthy reputation.

On Wednesday, Biden tweeted that any trade deal was "contingent upon respect for the Agreement and preventing the return of a hard border". Johnson added that the new legislation was aimed at protecting the UK's integrity.

The BBC said the promise of a vote before the bill is used will likely head off any potential rebellion by Conservative MPs-also known as Tories-when the proposed legislation is debated again next week.

The Foreign Secretary said the United Kingdom had "absolute" commitment to the Good Friday Agreement and accused Brussels of the "politicisation" of Northern Ireland issues in the context of Brexit trade talks.

Asked if Biden was wrong, the spokesman responded: "We will continue to work with our U.S. partners to ensure our position is understood, but the whole point of this - as the prime minister has set out - is to make sure the Belfast/Good Friday Agreement is upheld".

The U.K. withdrew from the EU's political institutions on January 31 but remains in a tariff-free transition period until the end of the year while negotiators work out the terms of a future trade relationship.
