Ukraine, Turkey could allow mutual visits on internal passports as early as before summer 2017
Ukraine and Turkey will introduce the regulations of mutual visits of the two countries' citizens without international passports, Ukrainian Foreign Minister Pavlo Klimkin said.
"I would like to emphasize something that Mevlut [Cavusoglu] and I would like to announce today, we have a visa-free regime, but in future both the Ukrainian and Turkish citizens will be able to visit our countries not using [international] passports anymore, on internal ones instead," Klimkin said at a joint press conference with Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu in Kyiv on Friday.
Cavusoglu, in turn, said that this regime could be introduced as early as before this summer. "We have concluded a preparatory stage. [...] I believe, it will start working prior to the tourist season," he said.
