U official: Nothing Geopolitical About Starting Visa Liberalization with Armenia

There is nothing geopolitical at all about EU's attitude towards visa liberalization dialogue with Armenia, Deputy Managing Director for Europe and Central Asia of the European External Action Service Luke Devine said.

"I do not think that there is anything geopolitical at all, it is in competence of the EU member states. It requires member states to agree. Some of them say there are problems, issues regarding Armenian citizens, for example those seeking asylum. This needs to be addressed," he said during a press conference dedicated to the second anniversary of signing of the CEPA.

He brought an example of Russia, which remains the largest beneficiary of the Schengen visas despite problems in EU-Russia relations.

"This is evidence that there is nothing geopolitical," he added.
