EU, in the Ten-T transport network Ukraine and Moldova

Russia and Belarus out, according to proposal

28 July, 15:43
(ANSA) - BELGRADE, JUL 28 - The EU Commission proposed amending the Ten-T regulation on the trans-European transport network to improve interconnection with Ukraine and Moldova and, among other things, to facilitate wheat export.

Commissioner for Transport Adina Vălean said, quoted by the Commission: "By extending four European Transport Corridors to the territory of Ukraine and Moldova - including the ports of Mariupol and Odesa - today's proposal will help improve transport connectivity of these two countries to the EU, facilitating economic exchanges and better connections for people and business alike. These corridors will also be a key priority in rebuilding the transport infrastructure of Ukraine once the war ends." In view of the Russia's war of aggression in Ukraine, and the position adopted by Belarus in this conflict, cooperation with Russia and Belarus on transport is no longer considered appropriate, nor in the interest of the EU, the Commission said.
