U.S. and European Union officials will meet next week in Washington, D.C., to further discuss risks to air travel and solutions for protecting passengers, the European Commission said on Wednesday after the two sides met in Brussels.

"At the meeting, both sides exchanged information on the serious evolving threats to aviation security and approaches to confronting such threats," the EU executive and the U.S. Department of Homeland Security said in a joint statement.
