A bill pledging reaffirmed support for the Good Friday Agreement during Brexit negotiations was unanimously passed by the US House of Representatives. 

The bipartisan resolution calls for strict adherence to the terms of the Good Friday Agreement as Brexit proceeds, passing by a unanimous voice vote on Tuesday evening. 

The bill strongly opposes the introduction of a hard border in Northern Ireland post-Brexit and urges both the UK and EU to ensure that the area remains peaceful. 

It also insists that any future trade agreements between the US and the United Kingdom following the later’s departure from the European Union would adhere to the UK’s Good Friday Agreement’s obligations.
