As reported by Censor.NET citing UNIAN, European Commission Chief Spokesperson Margaritis Schinas said in Brussels on Thursday, answering a question whether the results of the Netherlands' referendum on the EU-Ukraine Association Agreement will affect the decision of the European Commission to propose to grant Ukraine a visa-free regime.
President of the European Commission Jean-Claude Juncker said last month the proposal would be submitted no later than this month, Schinas noted.
As previously reported, a consultative referendum on EU-Ukraine Association Agreement took place in the Netherlands on April 6, with the majority voting 'no' on the matter of ratification of the EU-Ukraine Association agreement.
