Armenian President plans to attend EU Eastern Partnership summit in Vilnius

Armenian President Serzh Sargsyan plans to attend the upcoming EU Eastern Partnership Summit in Vilnius on 28-29 November, 2013, according to the Lithuania Tribune.

The fact was confirmed by Armenian Ambassador to Lithuanian Ara Aivazyan at a recent meeting with the Deputy Speaker of the Lithuanian Seimas, Gediminas Kirkilas, the Seimas said in a statement on Tuesday.

The statement also says that Armenia plans to take active part in the Eastern Partnership programme, despite the fact that on 3 September President Sargsyan announced Armenia’s decision to join the Customs Union and participate in the formation of the Eurasian Economic Union.

“Ahead of the Vilnius Summit, Armenia will seek to strengthen a political dialogue with the EU and its member states, aimed at promoting mutual understanding,” the statement said.

Armenia wants an achievement resolution to be signed during the Vilnius Summit to consolidate its achievements over three years of negotiations on the association agreement.
