Brexit not a factor in U.S.-UK trade deal delay,

3/12/2021 6:28
        A U.S. administration official on Thursday said the country's failure to remove tariffs on UK steel and aluminum has no connection to concerns about
        post-Brexit trade rules affecting Northern Ireland, rejecting a recent report.
        Former U.S. President Donald Trump slapped 25% and 10% tariffs on steel and aluminum imports from the European Union in 2018. The tariffs were withdrawn in October of this year, but they remain in place for Britain due to its exit from the EU.
        The Financial Times reported that trade talks stalled over U.S. congressional concerns about British threats to suspend parts of the Brexit agreement dealing
        with Northern Ireland.
        But a U.S. official who declined to be named disputed that account, saying there was no link between the issues, without providing details.
