 EU to grant Ukraine visa-free regime in May-July 2016, - Minister Klimkin

Foreign Minister Pavlo Klimkin expects the European Union to provide a visa-free regime to Ukraine in May-July 2016.

He said this on air of Inter TV channel, Censor.NET reports citing Ukrainski Novyny.

"I very much hope that a visa-free regime will be available for Ukrainians in 5 to 7 months maximum," Klimkin said. He added the decision was expected in late May-July.

Klimkin noted that the immediate introduction of a visa-free regime by the EU required a certain procedure: it will take a month or a little more time for the European Commission to submit a proposal on granting Ukraine a visa-free regime, after which the issue will be considered by the EU countries, followed by European Council's decision and a final approval by the European Parliament.
