Minister of Internal Affairs of Latvia Rihard Kozlovskis urges EU not to delay the decision on the abolition of visas for Ukraine and Georgia. It is reported by Delfi with reference to the advisor of Kozlovskis Daiga Holma.
According to Holma, at a meeting of the EU Ministers of Justice and Home Affairs Kozlovskis has supported the prompt introduction of a visa-free regime for Ukraine, Georgia, Turkey and Kosovo. He particularly singled out Ukraine and Georgia, which have met all the preconditions.
"We have to be consistent in our actions and decisions, because it deals with the implementation of criteria that we ourselves have put forward" - said Kozlovskis.
