EU's Borrell regrets US withdrawing from Open Skies Treaty

European Union High Representative for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy Josep Borrell (pictured) said on Friday he regrets "the announcement by the United States to withdraw from the Open Skies Treaty," adding that the US should rethink its decision.

He stated that "withdrawing from a Treaty is not the solution to address difficulties in its implementation and compliance by another party. While continuing to urge Russia to return immediately to the full implementation of the Treaty, I call upon the United States to reconsider their decision."

Borrell stressed the EU will be examining the implications this decision may have for its own security" and noted that all signees to the treaty "must continue to acknowledge this and ensure the full implementation of the Treaty."
