EU Ambassador to Manila Guy Ledoux, left, and French Ambassador to the Philippines Gilles Garachon prepare to take their seats for a news conference Wednesday, July 10, 2013, in Manila, Philippines. The European Union has partially lifted a ban on the entry of Philippine planes after aviation authorities in Manila addressed safety concerns, removing an obstacle to a robust flow of tourists and trade between Europe and the Southeast Asian nation, officials said Wednesday. Ledoux said that the decision, which takes effect on Friday, will allow flag carrier Philippine Airlines to resume flights to Europe. (AP Photo/Bullit Marquez) less
