The Paris government intends to ensure that Ukraine is prepared for a visa-free regime and organize the French Ministry of the Interior chief’s visit to Kyiv, French President Francois Hollande told reporters in Paris following his meeting with Ukrainian counterpart Petro Poroshenko, Ukrinform’s own Paris correspondent has reported.
"We discussed the issue of visa-free regime (during the meeting with Poroshenko – Ed.). We certainly know about conditions that have to be fulfilled, and our interior minister is following the situation very closely. We consider details how his visit to Ukraine can be organized in order to finally remove all obstacles," said Hollande.
The French President also noted that judicial reform, anti-corruption steps and transparency of the financial system all bring Ukraine closer to EU membership.
