"There are two decisions left to be made. This is the amendment to the law on declaration. Both European and our experts held consultations yesterday and today. I think that we will reach a decision. At least, my colleagues MPs, chairmen of the factions confirmed their readiness to support these amendments.

"The second issue is NACP (National Agency for Corruption Prevention), which is to be formed by the government. Therefore, one should proceed on this issue as fast as possible. I was assured at all meetings (I held quite a number of meetings, and all of them were at the high level) that the visa-free regime would be granted. And now I would like to refute all the speculations on this subject, regarding tackling of the issues simultaneously with Georgia or separately, it does not matter. The only thing that matters is that we will have a visa-free regime in 2016. It was confirmed to me by the European Commission today. There is full understanding in the European Parliament as well," Hroisman said.

"I would like to say that we have long been involved with the issue of the visa-free regime. I assume that we should have already resolved it," the speaker said.
