KIEV, September 11. /TASS/. Ukraine’s Foreign Minister Pavel Klimkin on Sunday once again said he hopes the European Union will finally grant his fellow countrymen visa-free travel regime.
"I hope very much this decision will be taken in October of November," he said in an interview with the Ukrainian television channel Inter.
He said there is no one in Europe who backs the visa regime for Ukrainian citizens.
"Not a single European Union country is against a visa-free travel regime," Klimkin said.
The European Parliament's Committee on Civil Liberties, Justice and Home Affairs discussed on September 5 the situation around visa liberalization for Ukrainian citizens but refrained from putting this matter for voting. The committee noted that it stands for easing visa issuance procedures for Ukraine but on condition of its implementation of all necessary requirements, as was done by Georgia and Kosovo.
On December 18, 2015, the European Commission said that the European Union should offer visa-free short-stay travel within the Schengen zone for citizens of Ukraine, Georgia, and Kosovo.
