Pompeo says U.S. working with Europe on how to reopen travel safely

WASHINGTON, June 24 (Reuters) - U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said on Wednesday the United States was working with countries in Europe and elsewhere on how to reopen for travel safely following coronavirus-linked shutdowns, after details emerged of EU criteria that could keep out Americans due to high rates of coronavirus infections.

“We’re working on finding the right way to do that, the right timing to do it, the right tactics to have in place,” Pompeo told a news conference.

“We certainly don’t want to cause problems any place else. I’m very confident in the coming weeks, we’ll figure that out, as between, not only the United States and the EU, but the United States and other parts of the world.” (Reporting by Humeyra Pamuk, Arshad Mohammed and David Brunnstrom; Editing by Bernadette Baum)
