EU, US Launch Second Phase of Open Skies Talks in Slovenia

Brdo pri Kranju, 15 May - US and EU officials were optimistic as they kicked off a fresh round of talks on the liberalisation of transatlantic air transport in Slovenia on Thursday. But the negotiations look set to be long and tough, as the US seeks to broaden Open Skies to other countries and the EU wishes to deepen the existing accord first.
