The United States government and European Union are expected to begin negotiating a justice- and security-related data-sharing agreement soon, the European Voice reports. The European Parliament will have to approve whatever agreement may be reached. A working group comprised of officials from both governments has already been working towards certain resolutions in this area, but a U.S. official said, "We have a long way to go." The European Commission's director-general of justice, Françoise Le Bail, will serve as chief negotiator of the talks, which will begin in April. (Registration may be required to access this story.)
