Belarus-EU visa talks at final stage

Belarus-EU visa talks at final stage

MINSK, 28 March (BelTA) – Belarus is optimistic about the outcomes of the talks on the visa facilitation and readmission agreements with the European Union, Belarus Deputy Minister of Foreign Affairs Oleg Kravchenko told reporters on 28 March, BelTA has learned.

No major developments regarding the visa talks have occurred in recent days, however, the parties are on the positive track. Oleg Kravchenko believes that the visa facilitation agreement will be signed before the Schengen visa fee increases to €80.

This visa facilitation agreement is conditioned upon the agreement on readmission that has not been finalized yet. “We are at the final stage already. However, I would not want to be very specific, because this is a two-way process. At the same time we are optimistic about the outcomes of the talks,” he said.

A reminder, on 22 March Belarus’ Minister of Foreign Affairs Vladimir Makei told the media that the agreement on visa facilitation between Belarus and the European Union is almost ready for signing. He noted that the document had a few arguable points, but the parties managed to come to a collective decision which enables them to sign the agreement in the near future. However, since the document was developed together with the agreement on readmission, it is impossible to say that it will be signed soon.
