Negotiations on Ukraine will start tomorrow, an UNIAN correspondent reported citing its sources in the EU Council.
“On 27 February 2017, the Council adopted a regulation on visa liberalisation for Georgians travelling to the EU for a period of stay of 90 days in any 180-day period,” the EU Council press service reports.
The Council and the European Parliament now need to sign the adopted regulation. The text will then be published in the EU Official Journal and will enter into force 20 days later, at the same time as the new visa waiver suspension mechanism.
