European Union disapproves of US travel ban

In a joint statement on the US travel ban, EU presidents Charles Michel and Ursula von der Leyen said they “disapproved” of the decision.

They said: “The coronavirus is a global crisis, not limited to any continent, and it requires co-operation rather than unilateral action.

“The European Union disapproves of the fact that the US decision to impose a travel ban was taken unilaterally and without consultation.

The European Union is taking strong action to limit the spread of the virus.”

Boris Johnson: UK and EU not that far off on trade talks

Boris Johnson has said there is a “very good” chance of securing a post-Brexit trade deal with the European Union as both sides agreed “new momentum” was needed to get negotiations back on track. The Prime Minister called for an agreement to be reached by the end of July after talks with the EU’s leaders. But European Council chief Charles Michel said the EU would not be pressured into buying a “pig in a poke” and insisted Brussels would stand by its demands for the UK to agree to a “level playing field” to ensure fair competition.
