Issue of visa-free travel for Ukraine may be put on EP agenda a few days before session
The issue of introducing a visa-free regime between Ukraine and the European Union could be put on the agenda of the European Parliament (EP) a few days before the plenary session, deputy head of the presidential administration of Ukraine Kostiantyn Yeliseyev has told Interfax-Ukraine.
"The non-availability of this issue [the introduction of a visa-free regime with the EU for Ukrainian citizens] on the agenda of the European Parliament at this stage does not mean it won't be considered in a certain time frame. We should understand that the agenda is a living document. It will be final a few days before the plenary session, when it will include the issues on which political agreements have been achieved at the last moment," the official said.
According to Yeliseyev, in this context it is very important for the EU to have political will to make an appropriate decision.
"Now we have no reason to doubt, and this was confirmed during intense telephone talks between President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko and the leadership of EU institutions in the past few days," he said.
