NEW YORK, April 6. /TASS/. Europe needs to tighten up security measures at public transportation, particularly on air flights, in the wake of terrorist attacks in the Belgium capital of Brussels last month, US Secretary of State John Kerry told Bloomberg news agency.
"One of the things Europe needs to do… they must begin to do a passenger name record system on air flights… and they need to have an early access screening system for some of those folks," Kerry said in an interview with Bloomberg.
"Europe has not been with the rest, certainly not the United States, and other countries with respect of that tracking," the high-ranking US official said. "They had privacy concerns, we respect them. But they did their learning, as we did in America with 9/11, that you have to take certain precautions and you have to give up something to be safer."
In Belgium, two blasts rocked Brussels airport in the morning of March 22 this year, killing over 30 persons and wounding several hundred others. The Belgian authorities confirmed the blasts were a terror attack and announced the highest level of terrorist threat in the country. A third explosion occurred in the Brussels metro close to the EU institutions in the Belgian capital on the same day.
