Resolving Europe’s Bank-Resolution Problems

The creation of a European banking union is a major step forward in the region’s financial integration.

"It was 14 August 2014," says Nigerian navigation officer Rotimi George.

Enhanced services

The principle behind the proposed law is that all internet traffic should be treated equally regardless of its source.

MEPs feared that unless new rules were put in place, internet providers might threaten to slow down traffic from data intensive services - such as video-on-demand and cloud storage - unless the firms behind them paid a fee.

Kremlin: Ukraine talks ‘full of misunderstandings and disagreements’

Putin, Poroshenko, German Chancellor Angela Merkel and UK Prime Minister David Cameron, who all attended the meeting, plan to hold their own talks later on Friday (October 17).

Simona Volta, euronews correspondent reported: “In Milan it’s another day of bilateral and multilateral talks. Putin and Poroshenko’s positions remain different. Perhaps another day with no solution to the crisis between Russia and Ukraine.”
