    Russia and Denmark have signed intergovernmental agreements on visa facilitation and readmission during a visit by Russia's foreign minister to Copenhagen, the Danish foreign minister said on Tuesday.

    COPENHAGEN, May 27 (RIA Novosti) - Russia and Denmark have signed intergovernmental agreements on visa facilitation and readmission during a visit by Russia's foreign minister to Copenhagen, the Danish foreign minister said on Tuesday.

    Per Stig Moller said the agreements will help to ease contacts between scientists, businessmen and students of the two countries. The deal is in line with agreements signed between the EU and Russia in December 2006, which did not cover some EU countries, including the U.K., Ireland and Denmark.

    "I am sure that the signed documents today will considerably ease possibilities for contacts between our people," the minister said following a meeting with his Russian counterpart Sergei Lavrov.

    Moller also accepted Lavrov's invitation to visit Russia.

    In addition to his meeting with the Danish foreign minister, Lavrov will also meet with Queen Margrethe II and Prime Minister Anders Fogh Rasmussen during his two-day visit to Denmark.
