 Ukraine has good chance to gain visa-free travel to EU before Nov. 24, - Klimkin

Ukraine's Foreign Minister Pavlo Klimkin doesn’t rule out a possibility that the decision on visa liberalization between Ukraine and the EU will be made before the Ukraine-EU Summit scheduled for Nov. 24.

Censor.NET reports citing Interfax-Ukraine.

"Everyone understands perfectly well that there must be a mechanism to respond to migration risks posed not only by Ukraine, but by all other states. I believe that the European Parliament and the member states have a chance to find a compromise before the end of the year... The question is when the EU countries will be able to strike a compromise. If they can do it next week, then we will certainly have a good chance," Klimkin said on air of 1+1 TV channel on Sunday.
