Ukraine resumes talks on visa liberalisation with UK

Ukraine has resumed talks with the UK on visa liberalisation for Ukrainian citizens and some progress is possible in the near future. 

"...We had to resume talks with the UK on visa liberalisation for Ukrainian citizens. It was agreed that the first round of talks will be held this October. In terms of development of trade relations, I think we will preserve status quo. We also have no problems in political relations. The visa-free regime granted to Ukraine within the framework of the association agreement with the EU does not cover the United Kingdom. Therefore, the visa liberalisation talks have been renewed. We expect a certain progress in this direction. However, conclusion of an agreement on simplified regime is unlikely to be a matter of one or two years," Ukrainian Foreign Minister Pavlo Klimkin said during a visit to Odesa, an Ukrinform correspondent reported.

It’s a lengthy process, the Ukrainian Foreign Minister said, expressing hope that the talks would be completed with signing an agreement.
