MOSCOW, October 15 (Itar-Tass) — Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev has said he’s frustrated with the slow pace of transition to a visa-free regime with the European Union.
“We’ve done a lot in this direction in recent years. But things are not very good so far,” Medvedev told a meeting of the Foreign Investment Advisory Council on Monday.
“We believe that we’ve done everything we could to adjust our legislation. We’ve signed re-admission agreements with almost all countries of the European Union. But there's a number of EU states which block free communication,” the premier went on to say.
“It seems to me that this is unfair and short-sighted,” Medvedev told representatives of business circles.
The premier said that Russia was also involved in talks with the United States on facilitation of visa regime. Medvedev admitted that some progress had been made in this direction but it was still below the Russian side's expectations.
