                La Commission européenne recommandera aux États membres de l'UE de rouvrir leurs frontières extérieures aux voyageurs de l'extérieur du bloc à partir du 1er juillet, a déclaré mercredi le chef diplomatique Josep Borrell.
            

La décision d'assouplir les restrictions imposées pour ralentir la propagation du coronavirus appartient aux capitales nationales, mais Borrell a déclaré que Bruxelles suggérerait "une levée progressive et partielle" de l'interdiction.

EU member states have started to relax temporary restrictions on non-essential border crossings within the EU, with the goal of restoring freedom of travel on 15 June.

Over the weekend, interior ministers from the 27 member states agreed to coordinate a gradual reopening to travelers outside Schengen, Britain and the EU.

    

Mais la commissaire aux Affaires intérieures, Ylva Johansson, a déclaré la semaine dernière que tous les pays n'étaient pas d'accord sur les critères de réouverture, certains étant plus pressés que d'autres.

Greece, for example, whose economy is heavily dependent on tourism, has already announced that it will reopen its skies from June 15 to a list of countries, including third countries such as Australia, China and South Korea.
