58 views

Following the "Transport, Telecommunications and Energy" Council, Radovan Žerjav, Slovenian Minister for Transport and President in office of the Council, and Jacques Barrot, Vice-President of the EC in charge of Transport, gave a joint press conference. EU Ministers for Transport did not reach an agreement on the two proposals on Maritime transport. The Council did not get the qualified majority needed to approuve the Directive on compliance with flag State requirements, and the Directive on the civil liability and financial guarantees of shipowners. Jacques Barrot took note of the decision but said that Europe should pave the way towards much greater maritime safety and towards a liability system which would provide proper compensation for victims, without waiting for an international agreement.
