Belgium supports the abolition of European Union visas for the citizens of Ukraine.

Ukrainian News Agency learned this from a statement made by the Vice Prime Minister’s press service.

During her working visit to Brussels, Belgium, Vice Prime Minister for European and Euro-Atlantic Integration Ivanna Klympush-Tsyntsadze had a meeting with Belgian Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Foreign Affairs and European Affairs Didier Reynders.

Reynders confirms that Ukraine has met all visa-free criteria. Visa free travels will be provided as soon as the European institutes have resolved the issue of the mechanism of possible suspension of visa free travels for third countries.

The pair paid special attention to the situation in the temporarily occupied territories of Ukraine and the state of implementation of the ‘Minsk accords’.

Klympush-Tsyntsadze pronounced gratitude to Belgium for the co-authorship of the UN Resolution on infringement of human rights in the Russia-occupied Crimea.

The parties also welcomed the bolstering of the political dialogues between Ukraine and Belgium, their mutually beneficial cooperation within international organisations, the restoration of the improvement of trade and economic relations, and also the vast potential of bilateral culture cooperation.

As Ukrainian News Agency earlier reported, Deputy Minister of Foreign Affairs Olena Zerkal thinks that the issue of visa abolition for Ukrainians can be included in the European Parliament agenda for the November 21-24 session.
