ZAGREB, June 10, 2020- High Representative of the European Union for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy, Josep Borrell, said on Wednesday the Commission would recommend this week the progressive and partial reopening of the EU’s external borders as of July 1.

Member States made a decision on March 17 to close external borders to non-essential travel from third countries until June 15, as part of the fight against the coronavirus pandemic.

These are decisions of member states with external borders because European institutions have no jurisdiction over the matter.

The European Commission recommended that this be done in a coordinated manner.

Last week interior ministers of member states agreed to co-ordinate progressive reopening of external borders to travellers from third countries.

The EU’s internal borders should reopen by the end of June, mostly by June 15, and in the second stage, at the beginning of July, external borders should also start to reopen.
