The MEP said this in his speech in the European Parliament in Strasbourg on Wednesday during a debate on pressures exercised by Russia on the Eastern Partnership countries.

"We need to remove trade and visa barriers. And if we can do that today, even before the summit, we will be able to prove that we can do something substantial. Maybe, we should sign the agreement several days before the scheduled date. It will give a concrete result, and it would be welcomed," he said.
