Demarche meaning: Joe Biden rebukes Boris over Northern Ireland – what is a demarche?


    US President Joe Biden is currently in the UK for the G7 summit alongside world leaders from some of the most influential countries. Tensions were always going to be high between Mr Biden, who is very vocal and proud of his Irish heritage, and Mr Johnson, who has been accused many times of stoking tensions in an already on-the-edge Northern Ireland with the protocol, the Brexit agreement relating to that part of the UK. President Biden previously sent a stark warning to the UK ahead of the Brexit agreement on December 24 in which he said peace in Ireland should remain a number one priority. 

    Yael Lempert, a senior official at the US embassy, reportedly told chief Brexit negotiator Lord David Frost that the UK Government was “inflaming” tensions in Northern Ireland. 

    Ms Limpet expressed President Biden’s “great concern” for the situation before she “slowly and gravely read her instructions aloud” in the meeting on June 3 according to The Times. 

    Reports suggest the Government minutes of the meeting read: “Lempert implied that the UK had been inflaming the rhetoric, by asking if he would keep it ‘cool’.”
