Russia May Scrap Visa Regime with EU by 2014 Olympics

TEHRAN (FNA)- Moscow would prefer to see visa-free travels introduced between Russia and EU in time for the 2014 Sochi Winter Olympics, Russian Foreign Ministry ambassador-at-large Anvar Azimov said Tuesday.



However, "it's a far-fetched goal," he said, adding that the parties would have hopefully agreed to lift visa rules by late 2014, RT reported.

Moscow and the EU will also consider abolishing visas for Russian service passport holders, the ambassador said.
