EU making great efforts for visa-free regime with Georgia, Ukraine

The EU is making great efforts to totally remove the visa regime with Georgia and Ukraine, European Commissioner for Neighborhood Policy and Enlargement Negotiations Johannes Hahn said during a PACE winter session.

He said Georgia should meet more than 40 and Ukraine more than 150 economic and political conditions of the EU in order to achieve the complete abolition of the visa regime.

The decision was made by the majority of MEPs. (
