Turkish Prime Minister Binali Yildirim and his Ukrainian counterpart Volodymyr Groysman agreed Tuesday to allow their citizens to travel to each other’s countries without passports.
“I believe that with the signed agreement, tourism, economy activities and mutual investment between Ukraine and Turkey will improve faster,” Yildirim said at a news conference with Groysman in the Turkish capital, Ankara.
The two countries signed agreements in travel and education.
Yildirim said the agreement would enable citizens of Turkey and Ukraine to travel to each other’s countries with their national identities.
“Thus, it will be a serious beginning on the path to achieving the targeted $20 billion trade volume,” he added.
Yildirim said the two countries had “three main targets” for 2017, namely, creating a free trade zone, protecting mutual investments and preventing double taxation.
