RIGA, October 14. /TASS/. Latvia will come out in support of total freezing of a visa dialogue with Russia at a conference of the EU Council due in Luxembourg on October 21, the Latvian Foreign Ministry said in a report submitted to the Latvian government on Tuesday.
The document confirms the Foreign Ministry's intention to fully freeze a visa dialogue with Russia and says that cooperation between Russia and Latvia on visa matters may be resumed only after the Russian Federation shows goodwill and takes concrete steps for settlement of the conflict in Ukraine.
Spokesman for the Latvian Foreign Ministry Karlis Eihenbaums said, commenting on the document, that Latvia has a skeptical attitude to a visa dialogue with Russia. "Russia had once wanted a visa-free regime with the European Union, but the crisis in Ukraine has placed a full stop to it," the spokesman said.
