The delegation managed to pay visits to Germany and Austria. The next destinations are Belgium, the Netherlands, Luxembourg, and the Scandinavian countries.
"As the full negotiations have not started yet, I cannot state for sure any dates for visa liberalization with the European Union. Also, we need the confirmation of all 28 EU states in that regard.
