BRUSSELS - The European Union is analyzing the US President Donald Trump's ban on the entry of people from seven Muslim-majority countries to see if it would affect Europeans, a spokesman for the bloc's executive said.

European Commission spokesman Margaritis Schinas told a news conference that the bloc was getting "conflicting input" on whether the ban would affect EU citizens with dual nationality from the countries affected.

Asked about Trump's move, he said that the EU itself did not discriminate among people arriving on the grounds of race, nationality or religion.
