HELSINKI, January 24. /ITAR-TASS/. Finland upholds prospects for introducing visa free formalities between the European Union and Russia, Finnish Foreign Minister Erkki Tuomioja told Itar-Tass.
“This issue is in the EU competence. We uphold this step. We have mutual agreement on measures that we should take before the visa free regime will become real. The process will take several years and I’m sure that visas will be cancelled,” the Finnish minister said.
