Ukraine and Serbia have signed an agreement on expanding a visa-free regime between the countries. President Poroshenko said this following the results of the meeting with his Serbian counterpart.

“We have expanded the agreement on the visa-free regime with Serbia. Now, Ukrainians can stay in this country for up to 90 days. Such agreement was signed in Belgrade today, ” the President wrote in Twitter.

“Just a several weeks ago we agreed that we would sign an agreement extending the time frames of the visa-free stay of Serbian citizens in Ukraine and Ukrainian citizens in Serbia to improve the ties between our people and facilitate visits of tourists, entrepreneurs and cultural figures to one another. I am sure that the document we signed today would play a very important role. We also agreed to create a commission that would study general political questions of our history,” Poroshenko noted at the joint briefing with Aleksandar Vučić, Serbian President.

As it was reported earlier, Poroshenko and Serbian President Aleksandar Vucic agreed on the further liberalization of the visa regime. It is noted that the leaders discussed the activation of the political dialogue and strengthening of the economic side of the bilateral relations.

Moreover, the presidents paid attention to the cooperation within the international organizations, interaction in the humanitarian sphere and agreed on the importance of the strict observance of the sovereignty and territorial integrity principles. 

Earlier, Vucic claimed that Serbia did not recognize Crimea as a part of Russia because it would mean the support of the independence of Kosovo. At the same time, Vucic reminded that in 2014 Belgrade did not support the sanctions against Moscow, however, it clearly states about its European ambitions.
