KIEV, December 08, 1:00 /ITAR-TASS/. Ukrainian Prime Minister Nikolai Azarov stated that a pause, which Kiev had taken on the way to signing an association agreement with the European Union, does not mean that the country had allegedly refused signing an agreement on visa-free regime, the prime minister said in statement made public on Saturday.
“This is absolutely not so. As a visa-free regime is determined by a separate agreement and to fulfil it Ukraine should meet fully several requirements and clear-cut criteria. Ukraine has fulfilled the overwhelming majority of demands,” Azarov said.
Meanwhile, he said with hope that the talks on the issue might take place soon and “the way to signing an agreement on the visa-free regime will be opened.
