EU-US open skies talks on hold for US briefing.
The British Transport Secretary Alistair Darling has said that the open skies talks between the European Union and the United States are on hold until the US provides details about removing restrictions on foreign ownership of US airlines.
Darling said that the US is expected to give a briefing on ownership rule changes on 6 January. The transport secretary also said that airline ownership and control is a big obstacle to resolve.
Additionally, EU ministers have decided that it is too early to negotiate for a similar agreement with China, as matters are not so well developed.
