EU-Canada: Visas for free trade

Visas for free trade – Vali Ivan
Adevărul (Bucharest)

Listen, if you don't want to get rid of visas for Romanians, I'm going to introduce visas for getting into Europe.

Romanian Foreign Minister Titus Corlatean warned that his country would not be able to ratify the free trade agreement signed between the European Union and Canada.

Bucharest has demanded that Ottawa to abolish visas for Romanian citizens who want to travel to Canada, a condition that Canada lifted in mid-October for Czech nationals. A Romanian refusal to ratify the deal, would block the implementation of the agreement, which must be ratified by all 28 EU members.
