EUROPEAN LEADERS AGREE ON BORDER CLOSURE

 

BRUSSELS, MARCH 17 /SRNA/ - EU leaders today agreed to close the external borders of the European bloc for 30 days, but have established fast lanes at their countries' borders so that goods can move around smoothly.

 

European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen said at a press conference that European countries would decide whether to close their borders to third-country nationals.

"The virus is the enemy and we have to do everything we can to protect the people and economies. We are ready to do whatever it takes. We will not hesitate to take additional measures," von der Leyen said.
