LUXEMBOURG, April 29 (Itar-Tass) - Luxembourg is among those few European Union states that support a visa-free regime with Russia, Russian ambassador to that country Mark Entin told Itar-Tass on Monday.
“As far as the visa issue is concerned, Luxembourg has been upholding a positive position,” both in terms of talks on further easing the visa regime and on abolishing visas for short-term trips, he noted.
“As for the easier visa regime, Luxembourg’s embassy in Moscow is vividly demonstrating how quickly and how efficiently visas can be issued even in the existing conditions. If all worked as they do, we would have much less visa claims,” the Russian diplomat stressed.
According to Entin, Luxembourg is taking big effort to improve conditions for investments and businesses.
“As for the financial services sector, experts say its quality excels even that in New York,” he noted. But the visa regime and the fact that there is no direct air flights to Russia “tell negatively on the potential of our business contacts,” Entin said and added that Luxembourg is taking effort to remove such barriers.
