The official summit business starts Friday, with the customary formal greeting and a socially distanced group photo before the queen arrives. Biden will be the 13th U.S. leader she's greeted, spanning decades of what's been historically called the "special relationship" between Washington and London. The president has repeatedly used the phrase "special relationship" despite his counterpart's distaste for it. "We affirmed the special relationship — it’s not said lightly — the special relationship between our people," he said Thursday after a meeting that both sides hailed as a success. Last year, while campaigning against then-President Donald Trump, Biden called Johnson the "physical and emotional clone" of Trump.

As part of the agreement, Biden and Johnson will also work to reopen travel between the U.S. and U.K. as soon as possible. U.S. national security adviser Jake Sullivan confirmed the updated Atlantic Charter agreement aboard Air Force One while en route to the U.K. Wednesday for Biden's first trip abroad as president. “There'll be a refresher of the Atlantic Charter, which is now 80 years old,” Sullivan told reporters. And while the Atlantic Charter represents the latest chapter in the "special relationship" between Washington and London, the British government said this week that Johnson doesn't like that term. An aide told The Atlantic in a profile about Johnson that the prime minister thought the phrase appeared needy.

A long-standing challenge for rural Ireland has been the migration to urban areas. The plan commits to providing financial support for local authorities to turn vacant properties in towns into remote working hubs. This includes a plan for "over 400 remote working facilities" across the country. Grainne O'Keeffe has first-hand experience of attracting people to a rural town. The government's National Broadband Plan is rolling out services in previously underserved areas but it has had its fair share of delays.

REUTERS/Clodagh KilcoyneThe Irish government has urged Britain against taking unilateral action to shield former soldiers who served in Northern Ireland during the UK province's sectarian conflict from facing prosecution, a foreign ministry spokesman said. The Daily Telegraph newspaper reported late on Wednesday that the British government is set to introduce a ban on prosecutions of Northern Ireland veterans under new legislation to be announced next week. Dublin had strongly advised London "against any unilateral action on such sensitive issue," the spokesman for Foreign Minister Simon Coveney said on Thursday. The province's Irish nationalist deputy first minister also said any such move by London would not be acceptable. A murder trial of two ex-British soldiers accused of shooting dead an Irish Republican Army commander collapsed this week.

Download the NBC News app for breaking news and politicsThe United Kingdom consisting of Great Britain and Northern Ireland remains one country. Under the terms of the Brexit deal, however, Northern Ireland will continue to be subject to the E.U.’s trade and customs rules. That decision — known as the Northern Ireland Protocol — was designed to avoid creating a hard economic border between Northern Ireland and the Irish Republic. “Northern Ireland is being torn away from the United Kingdom on the basis of nationalist threats of violence,” loyalist activist Jamie Bryson said. “Community police are the ones who pick up information on these people.”Police block a road near the Peace Wall in West Belfast, Northern Ireland, Thursday, April 8, 2021.

LONDON — It is often said that funerals can be a time to build bridges, and Prince Philip’s is apparently no exception. “I am sorry that that happened, of course that is heart-breaking,” said Mary Lou McDonald, the leader of Sinn Fein, said on British radio over the weekend in response to a question asking if she would apologize to Prince Charles. Northern Ireland is politically part of the U.K. but shares a land border with the Republic of Ireland. The remarks come as violence has flared in recent weeks in Northern Ireland, largely in loyalist areas, provoked by rising tensions over post-Brexit trade rules for the region. The country is run, however, by a coalition government, and Sinn Fein is in the opposition.

London (CNN Business) W. Galen Weston, the patriarch of a retail and food empire that spans the Atlantic, has died at 80. Prince Charles, the heir to the throne, was a polo partner and friend, the New York Times reported in 2007. Police sources told the New York Times after the plot was foiled that the Provisional Irish Republican Army was behind the attempt. Weston retired as chairman of George Weston Limited in 2016 to devote more time to his philanthropic endeavors. In our business and in his life he built a legacy of extraordinary accomplishment and joy," his son, Galen G. Weston, chairman and CEO of George Weston Limited, said in a statement.

Violent riots have broken out in Northern Ireland — here's why

LONDON — Tensions have erupted in Northern Ireland once again, as U.K. and Irish leaders attempt to preserve a long-standing peace deal in the region. The U.K. – which includes Northern Ireland – left the EU in 2020, whereas the Republic of Ireland remains a member of the union. How has Brexit affected Northern Ireland? It mandates either an "Irish Sea border," between Northern Ireland and the rest of the U.K., or a "hard border" separating Northern Ireland from the Republic of Ireland, which would enrage Irish nationalists. The Northern Ireland Protocol creates the former – a distinction between Northern Ireland and the rest of the U.K. – and it's angered the unionist community, which identify as British.

LARNE, Northern Ireland (Reuters) - As Northern Ireland’s unionists prepare to celebrate 100 years since the state’s creation cemented their place in the United Kingdom, post-Brexit trade barriers are triggering their deepest fears: being cut off from Britain and pushed towards a united Ireland. A tattered Union Jack flag hangs from a lamppost on a terraced street in Belfast, Northern Ireland, December 30, 2020. “We should be treated equally whether we live in Devon or Cornwall (in England) or Antrim or Down (in Northern Ireland). “I’m 50 this year and ever since I was a child I was told the united Ireland is coming,” Northern Ireland First Minister Arlene Foster told Reuters on Wednesday. Unionists there celebrate their identity by painting road edgings in the red, white and blue of the British flag or erecting pro-British murals.

finally agreed a trade deal that will replace the partnership they shared for 47 years. If they failed to reach an agreement by Dec. 31, the U.K. would have crashed out with a "no deal" Brexit. It is the first trade deal in history that erects more barriers — rather than fewer — compared to the seamless E.U. rules while the sides negotiated a trade deal — with a deadline of Dec. 31. Longer term, though it will not offset the economic damage likely done by Brexit, a new trade deal with the United States is seen as a grand prize for Brexiteers.

UK police arrest man over 1974 Birmingham pub bombings

LONDON (Reuters) - British counter-terrorism police said on Wednesday they had arrested a man over the 1974 pub bombings in the city of Birmingham which killed 21 people, the deadliest attack on the British mainland in 30 years of Northern Irish violence. The bombings took place in the crowded Mulberry Bush pub and The Tavern in Birmingham, central England, on Nov. 21, 1974. Although the Irish Republican Army (IRA) was believed to have planted the explosives, it never claimed responsibility. West Midlands Police said counter-terrorism officers had arrested a 65-year-old man at his home in Belfast on Wednesday in connection with the attacks. “The man was arrested under the Terrorism Act and a search of his home is being carried out,” they said in a statement.
