Visa liberalization postponed over Brexit and migration waves, - Deputy Prime Minister Klympush-Tsyntsadze

Deputy Prime Minister of Ukraine on European Integration Ivanna Klympush-Tsyntsadze says the introduction of a visa-free regime between Ukraine and the European Union is postponed over two issues: Brexit and the waves of migration faced by Europe.

She said on air of 5 Channel, Censor.NET reports referring to ZN.UA.

"... it is actually Brexit and the waves of migration faced by Europe that delayed the consideration of these issues by the European Parliament and the European Council, as some countries initiated the review and approval of an additional quite rigid mechanism of possible suspension of visa-free travel for any third country," Klympush-Tsyntsadze said.

She also expects the Committee on Foreign Affairs and the Committee on Civil Liberties of the European Parliament to come up with a positive report on Ukraine's implementation of its obligations to obtain a visa-free regime.

"And then, we will expect the European Parliament to finally decide on this issue in September. But we understand that decisions of these committees, in particular the Committee on Civil Liberties, will be crucial for subsequent decision by the European Parliament," she added.

Meanwhile, on Wednesday, July 7, Head of the EU Delegation in Kyiv Jan Tombiński said that the results of the Brexit referendum can not influence the process of granting Ukraine a visa-free regime.

Today, July 7, the Committee on Foreign Affairs of the European Parliament is to discuss the abolition of visas for Ukrainian citizens.
