Implementation of the provisions of these Treaties allowed the European states and first of all the people of Europe, to achieve success in the honorable task of protecting human rights, dignity, democracy, dissemination and implementation of shared ideas.
A further strengthening of the EU emanates also from the interests of small countries, such as Armenia. We are confident that challenges, which the EU has been encountering recently, will most certainly be defeated by the European countries.
I am very glad that lately we have registered remarkable success in the development of our relations with the European Union, and I wish that success to be continuous.
We are grateful to the European Union, to the delegation and personally you, Ambassador Świtalski, for this cooperation and assistance provided to Armenia,” President Serzh Sargsyan said.

This year has been full of events: we already have the initialed agreements, agreed priorities for cooperation, and have also reached agreement on the single support framework.
Mr. President, your visit to Brussels was a success, and it has given additional arguments to the European Union to be engaged in Armenia more and with greater dedication. We have received very important signals from the leadership of Armenia and from the European Union which is very important for us; it will enable us to do our job with greater enthusiasm.
