A House Foreign Affairs subcommittee held a hearing on the impact of the U.K.'s exit from the European Union, or “Brexit,” on the Good Friday Agreement, the Northern Ireland peace accord signed in 1998. Witnesses included former U.S. Special Envoy for Northern Ireland Mitchell Reiss and Monica McWilliams, who served as one of the signatories on the 1998 agreement. The two-hour hearing focused on reaffirming the U.S. role in future talks amid recent violence and tension. Witnesses also called for President Biden to appoint a new special envoy to finish the work started by Ambassador Reiss. Other recommendations offered included President Biden making a special visit to Northern Ireland and holding post-Brexit talks with U.K. and European Union officials. close
