Ambassador of the Netherlands to Ukraine Mr. Peter Jan Walters predicts the full abolition of the visa regime with the EU for citizens of Ukraine in case life conditions are improved in the country.

"I hope that in a few years Kyiv will achieve abolishing the visa regime with the EU countries, as happened in Romania in 2002 ... Meanwhile, I am sure the more positive changes for a better life will happen in Ukraine, the less people will need to go abroad and look for a job there. So, the faster the issue of opening borders and abolition of the visa regime will be addressed," Mr. Walters said in interview.

He noted that Ukraine is currently not ready to join the EU, and the question of signing the Association Agreement in November at the summit of "Eastern Partnership" in Vilnius (Lithuania) depends solely on the Ukrainian authorities.
