U.S. President-elect Joseph R. Biden Jr. on Tuesday said he opposed a guarded border between Ireland and Northern Ireland.

Mr. Biden spoke briefly with reporters in Wilmington, Delaware, shortly after he introduced his national security and foreign policy team.

“We do not want a guarded border. We want to make sure – we’ve worked too long to get Ireland worked out, and I talked with the British prime minister, I talked with the Taoiseach, I talked with others, I talked to the French,” Biden said.

“The idea of having a border north and south once again being closed is just not right, we’ve just got to keep the  border open.”

It was the first time since he defeated President Donald Trump that Biden had delved into a foreign policy subject.

Biden was also asked whether he would meet with President Trump.

“Of course I would, if he asked,” Biden responded.
