  • US President Joe Biden has arrived in Northern Ireland, travelling to Belfast International Airport on Air Force One. His visit is aimed at both political and business purposes. President Biden's top priority is to ensure that the Irish Accords and the Winter Agreement remain in place to maintain peace in the region. However, his Irish-American background and past comments have raised concerns among the Democratic Unionists who are boycotting Stormont. Despite this, President Biden's visit to Northern Ireland is highly significant, although it will be relatively brief. He will hold formal bilateral talks with the Prime Minister and deliver a speech at the University of Ulster before travelling to the Republic of Ireland. In Ireland, he plans to address the Irish Parliament and visit his ancestral homes. The rest of the week will be dedicated to these engagements.
  • Subtitles section
  • Stepping off Air Force One at a wet and windy Belfast International Airport a short time ago, President Joe Biden was welcomed to Northern Ireland by the Prime Minister.
  • Just behind the President, Joe Kennedy, his special envoy to Northern Ireland for economic affairs.
  • This trip is also about business.
  • But before leaving Washington this afternoon, President Biden had emphasised the political purpose of his visit.
  • What's your top priority on this trip?
  • Make sure the Irish Accords and the Winter Agreement stay in place.
  • Keep the peace.
  • That's the main thing.
  • And it looks like we're going to keep your fingers crossed.
  • It will take more than crossed fingers to get politics working again in Northern Ireland and this president, who wears his Irish heart on his sleeve, is not seen as a persuasive force by the Democratic Unionists who are boycotting Stormont.
  • Unfortunately, he does have an Irish-American track record, which is very green.
  • He has come out with some comments in the past that haven't exactly enamoured himself to the Unionist community, but let's see what he says when he is here.
  • As I say, the holder of the most prestigious post in the world is something that most countries would like to see visit their countries.
  • But his Northern Irish trip will not be long.
  • Tomorrow morning, President Biden and the Prime Minister will hold formal bilateral talks before the President's single public engagement here, a speech at the University of Ulster.
  • He will then travel to the Republic of Ireland, where he will address a joint session of the Irish Parliament and make trips to his ancestral homes over the course of the rest of the week.
  • So there may not be the opportunity here for the kind of rock star welcomes Bill Clinton enjoyed, but that the visit is happening at all is a reminder of the part successive presidents have played in cementing peace here and promoting prosperity.
  • The United States administration is encouraging companies to invest in Northern Ireland.
  • It's the only place in the world that the United States is encouraging companies to invest other than the United States, and that could have a significant dividend.
  • Northern Ireland has a unique status, after all, being within the UK single market and also within the European single market under the Windsor framework.
  • As yesterday's trouble in Londonderry showed, Northern Ireland is not yet a place entirely at peace, and today the police discovered four pipe bombs nearby, apparently confirming intelligence that a more serious attack had been intended.
  • But since the 1998 agreement, which President Biden is coming to celebrate, it is a place changed, and changed utterly from that which came before.
  • You mentioned the big impact previous presidents have had.
  • Of course Bill Clinton's visit in the mid-90s, 95, was so crucial really because the IRA obviously didn't trust the British government and that helped keep them inching forward.
  • But what can we expect from Joe Biden tomorrow in the current political stalemate?
  • Joe Biden, who, Tom, just in the last few seconds actually has arrived here in central Belfast with his motorcade that you can see behind me, Joe Biden arrives as a very different president into a very different situation.
  • He is not particularly trusted by unionism as an honest broker in any way.
  • I mean, President Clinton wasn't really in his day either.
  • He was seen as helping Gerry Adams to get a visa to the United States, things that actually annoyed the British government, let alone unionists at the time.
  • But what the problem is now is the Democratic Unionist Party not wanting to go back into storm because they don't agree with the Windsor framework, which Joe Biden did mention to the delight, I have to say,
  • Of Downing Street sources I've spoken to, he mentioned that as he left Washington.
  • But he is not the man who is going to persuade the Democratic Unionists to go back in.
  • He may have economic news, he may bring investment, as you heard Dan Mulhall in my report suggesting he might.
  • But although he mentioned politics, I don't think politics is going to be the major feature of his visit here over the next just under 24 hours.
