MINSK, 29 June (BelTA) – Belarus and Colombia might sign an agreement to waive visas for holders of ordinary passports in the near future, Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of Belarus to Ecuador and concurrently to Colombia, Nicaragua, and Panama Nikolai Ovsyanko said as he took part in the launch of an international online course on 29 June, BelTA has learned.

The ambassador noted that Belarus and Colombia are drafting a bilateral agreement to waive visas for holders of ordinary passports. “This is one of the main avenues of cooperation. We hope that the agreement will be signed soon,” Ambassador Nikolai Ovsyanko said.

He added that there is only one more item that Belarusian diplomats need to discuss with the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Colombia. “We hope that this matter will be settled in the near future,” the ambassador remarked.
