Canadian parliament promises to promote visa-free travel with Ukraine

The Canadian opposition promises to urge the Government to abolish visa requirements for travel of Ukrainian citizens to Canada.

MP of the New Democratic Party Randall C. Garrison said this during a joint meeting of the Standing Committees of the Canadian Parliament on International Trade and National Defense, which was held in the presence of Prime Minister of Ukraine Volodymyr Groysman, an Ukrinform correspondent reports.

"We will urge Canada to grant Ukrainians with visa-free travel in addition to our Free Trade Agreement," Garrison said.

He also noted the importance of expanding interstate contacts.

"I hope that we will be able to use our contacts, which are quite frequent recently, for the development of closer relations between our parliaments and the deepening of interstate relations," the MP told Groysman.
