Spain's Foreign Minister says that European Union members should agree to a common approach to open borders, re-establish freedom of travel in the Schengen Area and define which countries outside it should be considered safe to travel from and to,

Arancha González Laya said restarting cross-border travel should be decided collectively even if countries in the EU are phasing out lockdowns at different dates. "We have to start working with our European partners to retake the freedom of movement in European territories," he said on Tuesday, adding that she would like to see a European definition of which countries should be deemed as safe. Germany, too, has proposed to reopen its borders for other European countries on June 15, according to reports.
