Lat­vian and Rus­sian rep­re­sen­ta­tives will meet in Moscow in May to dis­cuss amend­ments to border cross­ing reg­u­la­tions for lo­cal res­i­dents, the Lat­vian For­eign Min­istry has re­ported. The con­sular con­sul­ta­tions with Rus­sia will fo­cus on amend­ments to the agree­ment be­tween the Lat­vian and Rus­sian gov­ern­ments in De­cem­ber 2010 on border cross­ings for res­i­dents of the border area.

“We might dis­cuss amend­ments aimed at re­duc­ing ad­min­is­tra­tive bar­ri­ers for lo­cal res­i­dents,” said the min­istry’s spokesman Rai­monds Jan­sons. How­ever, the min­istry does not have any in­for­ma­tion about Rus­sia’s pro­posal on this matter.

As re­ported, Lat­vian Agri­cul­ture Min­is­ter Ja­nis Duklavs (Greens/farm­ers) said af­ter the meet­ing with Rus­sian Am­bas­sador to Latvia Yevgeny Lukyanov on April 10, that Rus­sia may of­fer to ease terms for co­op­er­a­tion with Latvia in cer­tain as­pects con­cern­ing border ar­eas.
