Belarus will continue to work for the early signing of the agreement on simplification of visa regime with the EU, said December 8 spokesman for the Ministry of Foreign Affairs Dmitry Mironchik.
The Lithuanian side is interested in these negotiations to be accelerated, said Lithuanian ambassador to Belarus yesterday.
The sides will sign the agreement after technical issues are harmonized.
Dmitry Mironchik, Belarus foreign ministry spokesperson:
A few technical issues do remain unresolved for now. As you know, this is the introduction of biometric passports. This is the issue Belarus is looking into. This is also a deferred period on the readmission agreement. We also stated our position on this matter. We will work on all of this trying to bring closer the negotiating positions.
