Belarus and the EU to hold technical consultations on visa facilitation
Belarus and the European Union will hold technical consultations on visa facilitation, Deputy Minister of Foreign Affairs of the Republic of Belarus Alena Kupchyna informed, adding that these issues are to be discussed with consideration of the new migration situation in the EU. “Belarus is, first of all, interested in negotiating a readmission agreement. We are ready to undertake the corresponding obligations, however, there is a transition period which needs to be agreed,” she explained. Belarus is suggesting a three-year transition period.
