Mogherini: Visa liberalization for Ukraine to be approved soon

The visa regime between the European Union and Ukraine will be liberalized soon.

This was stated by EU High Representative for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy Federica Mogherini following the meeting of the Ukraine-EU Association Council in Brussels on Monday, an Ukrinform correspondent reported.

"On visas: another issue that I know is very much close to the Ukrainian population and authorities’ hearts. The Council and European Parliament have agreed on the revised suspension mechanism. This paves the way for final procedural steps, which will enable visa liberalization for Ukraine soon," the EU High Representative said.

In turn, Vice Prime Minister of Ukraine for European and Euro-Atlantic integration Ivanna Klympush-Tsyntsadze noted that the EU had once again confirmed that the Ukrainian side had fulfilled all its obligations.

The Ukrainian official expressed hope that those procedures would be completed by April 2017.
