At a high political level, an initiative has appeared that should strengthen the ties of Belarusians with the European Union: we are talking about a visa-free regime with the EU.

According to Deutsche Welle , the Visegrad Group (which includes Poland, Hungary, the Czech Republic and Slovakia) plans to propose to the EU to introduce a visa-free regime for Belarusian citizens, as well as to prepare a package of economic measures to support Belarus in the future.

This statement was made on Friday, September 11, by Prime Minister of Poland Mateusz Morawiecki at a press conference in Lublin after a meeting of the heads of government of the Quartet.

According to Morawiecki, it is also about energy security, cooperation in the information and infrastructure sectors. The Quartet will present these proposals at the next EU summit scheduled for September 24-25.

“We know how important it is for trade that the infrastructure between our countries is as good as possible. We want to offer visa-free entry for Belarus. This is the economic package that we want to offer at the meeting of the Council of Europe,” quotes his statement .
