Speaking on the development, Eric Manner, the EU Commission spokesman said the union had the right to choose who would enter its borders. He added that it was based on health criteria.

“The European Union has an internal process to determine from which countries it would be safe to accept travellers,” he said.

The EU commission on June 11, presented its recommendation on the reopening of internal Schengen borders on June 15, so that Europeans could travel freely within the borderless areas just as they did before the COVID-19 pandemic.
