VILNIUS, November 29. /ITAR-TASS/. The final declaration of the Eastern Partnership summit that ended in the Lithuanian capital city Vilnius on Friday has no mention of the participant countries’ European Union membership prospects. Neither does it mention the pressure inserted on these countries by foreign forces, of which there had been said too much before the summit.
The 13-page document thoroughly lists the achievements of the Eastern Partnership states on their path of building democracy, strengthening human rights and development of regional cooperation.
The document says that these countries have prospects of visa liberalization but stresses that a possible visa-free travel regime will be discussed with each of them individually. The document however sets no time limits for that.
