Sofia News Agency

European Union External Relations Commissioner Benita Ferrero-Waldner called on Ukraine Thursday to drop the visa regime for Bulgaria and Romania.

This should be done in order for an alleviated visa regime for Ukrainian nationals wishing to visit the EU to become active.

In an interview for the Ukrainian Delo newspaper Ferrero-Waldner stressed once again that as of January 2007Bulgaria and Romania are members of the EU and all relations with them should be equal to those with older members.
