Armenia, EU planning to sign Framework Agreement in November

Armenia and EU are planning to sign the Comprehensive and Enhanced Partnership Agreement during the Eastern Neighborhood Summit in Brussels in November, Armenian Foreign Minister Edward Nalbandian said at a joint press conference with his visiting Estonian counterpart Sven Mikser.

Estonia will assume the chairmanship of the European Union from July 1st. The Estonian Foreign Minister said the country has a very ambitious agenda, and stressed that Eastern Partnership was among the priorities.

“I hope the negotiations between Armenia and the European Union will be successfully completed,” he said.

Speaking about the perspectives of visa liberalization between Armenia and the EU, Minister Mikser said. “I think the free movement of people is a very important factor for bringing peoples and countries closer. Estonia is definitely interested in the completion of the process sooner rather than later,” he added. He said, however, that no dates could be mentioned.

“We’ll give a boost to the process, but the rest will depend on Armenia’s ability to meet all standards,” he said.
