MINSK, November 15, /ITAR-TASS/. Konstantin Romodanovsky, the head of the Russian Federal Migration Service (FMS), and Igor Shunevich, the interior minister of Belarus, signed a re-admission agreement in Minsk on Friday.
“We are just implementing our arrangements in the sphere of migration policy,” Romodanovsky said. He added that the agreement reflected a universal international approach adopted by the international community.
Today, it is hard to say how many readmission cases Moscow and Minsk will have to deal with because such incidents are rare in the Union State of Belarus and Russia, Romodanovsky went on to say. By comparison, Russia has to deal with almost 10,000 readmission cases under agreements with European Union countries.
The FMS said that Russia had signed readmission agreements with other CIS countries and was finishing signing protocols with EU states.
For his part, Belarusian Interior Minister Igor Shunevich described the Russia-Belarus readmission agreement as a civilized way of solving problems linked to illegal migration.
“We have got a universal legal instrument, which allows solving migration problems promptly and efficiently. It is a serious step forward,” Shunevich stressed.
Illegal migration problems are usually created by foreign nationals and persons without citizenship. According to the Belarusian interior minister, Belarus is unlikely to see an influx of illegal migrants in the near future.
