5D II - HDTV: no 25 fps for European PAL / SECAM systems?

Bear with me, I am very ignorant when it comes to video standards.

I live in Europe and I believe our PAL / SECAM systems use 25 fps (50i). With all the talk about 30 fps (and all the moaning about the missing 24 fps in the 5DII) I am beginning to worry about the useability of the HDTV footage from the 5DII in Europe. Or am I missing something here?
