Klimkin: Eastern Partnership countries' FMs discussed reduction of roaming rates in Europe
Foreign Ministry heads of the member countries of Eastern Partnership at a meeting in Brussels among other issues were discussing the issue of reducing roaming charges in Europe, the head of the Ukrainian Ministry of Foreign Affairs Pavlo Klimkin has said.
"We'd like to become a part of the EU internal market, a part of the European energy system... I am very glad that I heard about support for the provision of a visa-free regime of all the ministers who took part in this meeting. And of course, we talked about the ways contributing to human contacts. There were some very interesting ideas, e.g. reduced roaming charges, for it will never do to pay so much money when travelling around Europe," Klimkin said.
He said he also talked to UK Foreign Secretary Philip Hammond about joint aviation space, "to pay EUR50 for the plane instead of EUR300."
