European Commission head on visa-free regime for Russian nationals

The conclusion of the readmission agreement between Russia and the European Union is a priority goal en route to the introduction of the visa-free regime, believes Richard Wright, head of the Russian office of the European Commission.

Within the framework of the existing agreement on partnership and cooperation we are ready to discuss the introduction of the visa-free regime for Russian nationals, said Wright. It is a long-term problem, he is sure.

Such a regime will prompt closer contacts, investments and a better understanding between countries of the European Union and Russia, believes the head of the EC office.

For this idea, even approved at the top level, to become a reality Russia will have to take a series of steps, he stressed.

Among them, I think, is above all the conclusion of a readmission agreement between Russia and the European Union, said Wright in an interview to the Rossiiskaya Gazeta newspaper. It will be published on Wednesday, May 28.

Another goal, complex and costly, Wright sees in raising the reliability of transit documents and passports, as well as the strengthening of the frontier service.
