European Union The EU Council, the European Parliament and the European Commission agreed at a trilateral meeting on December 13 to move forward with finalising the visa waiver deal with Georgia in parallel with the revision of the suspension mechanism and enforce the visa free regime simultaneously with the visa suspension mechanism.
The European Parliament reached an agreement on the visa suspension mechanism with the Council on December 7 and is expected to discuss it on December 14 and put it to a plenary vote on December 15.
The trilateral political agreement needs to be confirmed by member state representatives (Coreper) and endorsed by the Civil Liberties Committee and the Parliament as a whole, probably in January, according to the EU press release.
