CHISINAU, February 27. /ITAR-TASS/. The European Parliament’s decision to cancel visa rules for Moldovan citizens is an example of unprecedented support for Moldova’s European integration, Moldovan Prime Minister Iurie Leanca said on Thursday.
“This is one more proof of Europe’s unprecedented political support for our country over the past several years,” he said. “Abolition of visa rules that I hope will enter into force in the shortest possible timeframe will help us enter a new level of interaction.”
Leanca believes that visa-free rules for Moldovan citizens to travel to countries of the Schengen area will be created in June.
The European Parliament’s decision should also get approval from the Council of the European Union, although all member-states have already given their informal agreement. New rules will encompass Moldovan citizens, who have biometric passports. Within six months they will be able to stay on the territory of the Schengen area without visas for 90 days.
