The eleventh meeting of Russia-EU Joint Committee on Readmission took place on 10 July 2012 in Brussels. The Russian delegation was headed by Mr. Nikolay Smorodin, Deputy Director of the Federal Migration Service of the Russian Federation.
The Parties positively assessed the implementation of the 2006 Russia-EU readmission agreement and the tempo of the conclusion of its implementing protocols.
The Russia-EU cooperation on readmission issues is interconnected with their Dialogue on migration and Visa Dialogue and represents an important element of their common work towards visa facilitation and visa free travel of Russian and EU citizens.
The next meeting of Russia-EU Joint Committee on Readmission will be held in Moscow at the end of 2012.
