Biden lands in Belfast for a historic tour of the island to mark 25th anniversary of Good Friday Agreement

Joe Biden was tonight greeted in Northern Ireland by Rishi Sunak as the US President arrived at the start of a historic four-day tour of the island to mark the 25th anniversary of the Good Friday Agreement.

The American leader and the First Lady, Dr Jill Biden, touched down in Belfast in Air Force One this evening, where he was greeted by the British Prime Minister before being taken away in his armoured car, dubbed ‘The Beast’.

Mr Biden and Mr Sunak will also hold a meeting tomorrow before the US President gives an address at Ulster University’s new £350million Belfast campus. He will carry out several other engagements across the week to mark the 25th anniversary of the Good Friday Agreement.

The President will also travel to the Republic of Ireland, where he will carry out a number of engagements, including a speech in Dublin as well as visits to Co Louth and Co Mayo – from where his ancestors hail.

Speaking to reporters before his departure, Mr Biden said that his top priority was to ‘make sure the Irish accords and the Windsor Agreement stay in place, keep the peace’.
