YEREVAN. – The Comprehensive and Enhanced Partnership Agreement between Armenia and the EU and the Declaration adopted at the Eastern Partnership Summit in Brussels clearly state there are certain conditions for visa liberalization, head of EU delegation Piotr Switalski told reporters in Yerevan.
“I am optimistic and I believe that we have the commitment that can lead to the visa liberalization on both sides. Visa liberalization is not a right, it's an advantage,” he said.
According to him, for this purpose, legal, administrative and institutional arrangements should be implemented, and they still require long work.
Speaking about the terms, the diplomat said that he could not specify exact date, but believes that the liberalization of the visa regime by 2020 will be one of the expected 20 deliverables.
