Netherlands to support visa-free regime for Ukraine21.10.2016 16:45 1120
The Dutch Government does not have any additional political conditions in the issue of cancellation of visa requirements for Ukrainian citizens. However, the EU, first, is waiting for adoption of a new mechanism to suspend visa-free regime with all third countries.
Prime Minister of the Netherlands Mark Rutte said this on the sidelines of the EU summit, responding to a question by an Ukrinform correspondent in Brussels.
"We do not have any special position. We support visa liberalization for Ukraine. However, the European Council decided, and now this issue is considered by the European Parliament, that there should be clear mechanisms for further visa liberalization regimes," the Dutch Prime Minister said.
