The official website of the European Parliament hosted a forecast according to which the consideration of the mechanism of suspension of visa-free regime will be held on January 18, 2017.
The document 2016/0142 (COD) will be considered in a single reading.
As you know, a meeting of the tripartite group of the European Union is held on Tuesday in Brussels, to which representatives of all three EU institutions will discuss the introduction of a mechanism of suspension of visa-free regime.
The document is almost finished, but its adoption is hindered by the political issues. For example France would like to postpone the adoption of the mechanism until the presidential elections in April 2017.
Visa liberalization for Ukraine, Georgia and Kosovo depends on the introduction of this procedure.
