EU disapproves of US travel ban, taken unilaterally and without consultation

The European Union said on Thursday it disapproved of the U.S. decision to improve a unilateral travel ban on European countries, European Commission president Ursula von der Leyen and Council president Charles Michel said in a statement.

“The European Union disapproves of the fact that the U.S. decision to improve a travel ban was taken unilaterally and without consultation,” the statement said, adding that the EU is taking “strong” measures to limit the spread of the virus.

Earlier on Thursday U.S. President Donald Trump banned travel from Europe to stem the spread of coronavirus.
