Date for Ukraine visa liberalisation vote removed from European Parliament website

A preliminary date for the first reading vote of a visa liberalization package for Ukraine has been removed from the website of the European Parliament.

The technical information on the corresponding bill does not include anymore the forecast date of a plenary sitting when the move is to be considered.

Thursday reports stated that such forecast date was set for April 3, 2017.

Earlier, the EP Secretariat was instructed to remove from the website this indicative date for Ukraine`s visa liberalization vote in order not to create incorrect negative expectations.

The EP also noted that the said change of a schedule from February to April was, in fact, an error.
