Armenia and the European Union are close to the final stage of negotiations on a new Framework Agreement, Armenian Foreign Minister Edward Nalbandian told a press conference today.
“We have held eight rounds of negotiations since the start of the talks in December 2015. The next round of negotiations is expected in February. I think we are close to the final stage, as we’re reached agreement on the overwhelming majority of the provisions of the new agreement, both political and economic ones,” Minister Nalbandian added.
An important EU delegation will visit Armenia in the near future, and it will provide another opportunity to make corrections in the negotiation process.
“I think we’ll be able to declare in the near future that we have completed the negotiations,” Edward Nalbandian stated.
