UKRAINE, ROMANIA SIGN VISA AGREEMENT. Ukrainian Deputy Foreign Minister Ivan Kuleba and Romanian Ambassador to Ukraine Alexandru Cornea signed an agreement on 18 December on a new visa regime between their countries, Interfax reported. The agreement provides for visa-free travel for the holders of service and diplomatic passports, as well as for crews of ships and aircraft. Kuleba noted that the document does not provide for a deadline for introducing the new procedures, however. "This will happen no earlier than 1 July 2004," he said. Romania is introducing visas for Ukrainians in conjunction with its intention to join the European Union in 2007. AM
