BRUSSELS (Sputnik) — The European Parliament's Committee on Civil Liberties, Justice and Home Affairs on Monday voted to support a visa-free travel deal with Georgia and Kosovo, the committee's press service said.
"#Visa waiver proposal for #Georgia backed by @EP_Justice 44/5/0 | @GabrielMariya," the committee said via its Twitter account.
Also on Monday, the committee approved the same decision with regard to Kosovo by a slight majority.
Brussels and Tbilisi signed the EU-Georgia Association Agreement on June 27, 2014. In March 2016, the European Commission proposed to lift visa regime for Georgian citizens.
On July 7, the European Parliament's Committee on Foreign Affairs also recommended to grant visa-free travel to the residents of Ukraine, Georgia and Kosovo.
