FM: Visa Exemptions Beneficial to Finland and Russia

Minister of Foreign Affairs Alexander Stubb says Finland should reconsider its stance on visa exemptions between Finland and Russia, reports the Finnish News Agency, STT. Stubb says easier travel over the eastern border would be beneficial for both Finns and Russians.

Free trade and visa exemptions between the EU and Russia would also benefit the development of Russia's democracy, according to Stubb.

He adds that the EU's visa policy should not be based on prejudices.
