The longer the transition period, the more both sides will need to know exactly how the Irish border will work (see Brexit: What will happen next? for more on the transition). US Senator George Mitchell, who led the negotiations on the Belfast Agreement, commented that he believed the establishment of a border control system between the Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland could jeopardise the agreement.
