Dutch PM vows support for immediate visa waiver for Ukrainians

Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte has told Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko in Davos he supports the immediate introduction of visa waiver for Ukrainians, according to the presidential press service.

“The Prime Minister of the Netherlands reaffirmed support for Ukraine in the issue of the continuation of sanctions against Russia until full implementation of the Minsk agreements and restoration of Ukraine’s territorial integrity, including Crimea, as well as immediate introduction of the EU visa-free regime for Ukrainians,” the press service said.

Further, Poroshenko emphasized that the decision of the European Council made in December created prospects for the completion of the process of ratifying the Ukraine-EU Association Agreement by the Netherlands.
As it was reported earlier, head of the EU Delegation to Ukraine Hugues Mingarelli said he expected a temporary visa waiver suspension mechanism to be officially approved by third countries in February-March 2017.
