Finland seeks bilateral agreement with Russia on immigration

Verkkouutiset reports that Finnish Minister of the Interior Petteri Orpo met with his Russian colleague Vladimir Kolokoltsev on Tuesday to discuss decreasing illegal immigration on the Finnish-Russian border. Mr Orpo said Finland would like to make a bilateral agreement with Russia, even though Finland is an EU member state and part of the Schengen area. The issue should not be turned into a major political question. Mr Orpo noted that the EU and Russia have an agreement on readmission. The Finnish officials will now look into how the agreement is interpreted.
