Ukraine, Georgia still have work to do to get visa-free regime with EU - European Commission spokesperson
Ukraine and Georgia have expressed their desire to achieve a visa-free regime with the EU at the Eastern Partnership summit in Riga on May 21-22, European Commission spokesperson Natasha Berto said at a briefing in Brussels on Friday.
She was asked to comment on two reports of the European Commission on the implementation of the respective action plans on visa liberalization by Ukraine and Georgia published on Friday.
The summit in Riga will be an important step in the cooperation with the Eastern Partnership countries, in particular in visa liberalization, Berto said.
According to her, the two reports published on Friday say that the two countries - Ukraine and Georgia - have made significant progress, but there is still much work to be done in a number of areas.
Berto explained that the EC was ready to issue follow-up reports earlier than planned, if the relevant requirements were met.
