Germany and France are developing the norm on suspension of the EU visa-free regime for certain countries, reports Die Welt.
According to the newspaper, such measures are linked to concerns that the rapid and "package" provision of a visa-free regime of Georgia, Ukraine and Kosovo will worsen the security situation.
During the closed meeting German Interior Minister Thomas de Maiziere said an increase of apartment burglaries made by transnational criminal groups. Particularly problematic, he said, have recently been the Georgian criminals. The German government circles also point out that Georgia has a significant problem with organized crime.
Earlier, Foreign Minister of Ukraine Pavlo Klimkin said that Ukraine may get visa-free regime with the European Union after Georgia, but there are no questions of the suspension of the procedure.
