Nicosia, Dec 2 (CNA) -- Cyprus and Russia will review bilateral agreements on the abolition of visas regarding diplomatic and other passports and the terms of travel by Cypriot and Russian nationals to the two countries.

The move comes after Thursday’s unanimous vote in the Cyprus House of Representatives which approved the relevant bill.

The bill abolishes a previous bilateral agreement which provided for the cancellation of visa fees for Russian and Cypriot citizens.

It also annuls an agreement on the abolition of visas for diplomatic passport holders.

Furthermore it revokes visa arrangements for citizens of the two countries.
