In addition, he asked Biden to move forward with the delivery of temporary work visas, which will allow ordering immigration flows.

There is a fact: There is a shortage of labor force in the United States, and there is a shortage of workers. So, the most convenient, logical, effective and humane thing is to arrange the flow of immigration and give the opportunity to those who want to go voluntarily to work in the United States with those temporary visas. They (the United States) are already increasing the number of temporary visas, that is, work is in progress, but progress is slow.”
