BRUSSELS, May 8. /TASS/. The European Union is not likely to grant visa-free travel for citizens of Ukraine and Georgia at a summit with six of the bloc's eastern neighbours this month in Riga, the European Commission said on Friday
The EC's Natasha Bertaud told a news conference in Brussels plans to grant both Georgians and Ukrainians visa-free access to the EU's Schengen zone by the May 21-22 Eastern Partnership summit were "highly ambitious", but according to the Commission’s latest report, much still remained to be done.
The European Commission published a report on Friday, saying that both Ukraine and Georgia had made considerable progress towards visa liberalisation, but the two countries still needed reforms to be able to enjoy the kind of treatment another former Soviet republic, Moldova, had obtained.
