A recent report confirmed that US government would be calling on all those countries who opposed an EU law, which makes all foreign airlines to shell out extra for greenhouse gas emissions. The two-day meeting in Washington D. C on 31 July will witness 12 countries putting on their views in front in the same context.
Prior to this, there was a meeting held in Moscow in the month of February, in which the same issue was discussed, thereby leading to jotting down of some retaliatory measures against the EU, including scrapping all talks with European carriers on new routes, imposing retaliatory levies on EU airlines etc. With countries like U. S., China and India voicing their opposition to the proposal, it has been made clear by EU officials that they are totally dedicated to their plan in order to root out carbon emissions from planes. However, countries opposing the EU proposal are fine being part of a global emissions framework under U. N's International Civil Aviation Organization
"The EU is very committed, totally committed, to reaching an agreement that fully respects the conditions that we have put forward," said Commission Spokeswoman Pia Ahrenkilde Hansen, while showing disappointment towards the Montreal-based U. N. organization for being callous in developing the international scheme.
With so much of buzz about the same issue, it would be interesting to see how things turn in the time to come.
