2009-11-25 11:03

According to delegate of the European Parliement Lena Kolyarskaya-Bobinskaya, members of European Union and the countries of the Eastern and Central Europe should develop a real and detailed plan for visa regime cancellation in the near future, reports.


"This would go in line with the "Eastern Partnership" idea and would take European Union to a new level of relationship with neighbors", - she said.

The same opinion is shared by Andrzej Adamchik, Rapporteur of the European Committee; he believes that it is now important to cancel the visa regime between the countries of the South Caucasus and European Union.

«Visa-free regime contributes to cooperation between the people", - Adamchik noted.

In 2008, the Eastern Partnership program was approved by EU; the program was initiated in May 2009. It is aimed at strengthening relationship of EU with six post-Soviet countries: Byelorussia, Ukraine, Armenia, Moldavia, Georgia and Azerbaijan. According to the statements made by EU heads, the Eastern Partnership program is aimed at creating a free economic zone and setting up a simplified visa regime between those countries being members of the program.
