MOSCOW, December 18. /ITAR-TASS/. A report by the European Commission on Russia’s compliance with the joint steps towards visa free formalities with the European Union proves that unfortunately, the EU seeks to put off a visa free dialogue indefinitely, Russian Foreign Ministry ambassador at large Anwar Azimov told Itar-Tass.
Azimov is senior official of the Russia-EU Visa Dialogue.
“One can’t forget that the dialogue has been continuing for more than seven years. We believe that the European Union should be also interested in abolishing visas,” the Russian diplomat said.
“This is not a political concession to Russia, but this is mutually advantageous for our peoples and states,” he said.
