Turkish Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoglu said Monday that his government decided to lift visa requirements for Polish citizens so as to boost the interaction between the two nations.

He was making the remarks during a joint press briefing with his Polish counterpart Ewa Kopacz following the two leaders' private meeting and a working dinner in capital Warsaw, where he pays a two-day working visit.

"In response, Prime Minister Ewa Kopacz promised us to increase the frequency of flights between the two countries," said Davutoglu.

He stated that his Polish counterpart also pledged full support to Turkey for Schengen visa liberalisation.

"We hope both the air transportation will increase and Turkish citizens will have the chance to freely move throughout Europe with the support from Poland," he added.

He will also meet representatives of the Turkish community in the former Soviet nation and will deliver a speech Tuesday at the closing ceremony of the 600th anniversary celebration at Poland's leading art institution Teatr Wielki, where a number of Turkish artists will be present.

Deputy PM Numan Kurtulmus, Economy Minister Nihat Zeybekci and Culture and Tourism Minister Omer Celik will also accompany the premier during the visit.
