The FINANCIAL — European Council President Donald Tusk met the President of Armenia Serzh Sargsyan on 27 February in Brussels and announced the conclusion of negotiations on the new EU-Armenia Comprehensive and Enhanced Partnership Agreement.

“We are looking forward to stronger cooperation in sectors such as energy, transport and the environment, for new opportunities in trade and investments, and for increased mobility for the benefit of our citizens,” Tusk said in his remarks.

In their meeting, the high-level officials discussed commitment to democracy, human rights and the rule of law as well as the peaceful resolution of the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict, according to EU Neighbours East Info.

“The EU is already the first trade partner of Armenia, its first international donor and strongest supporter to reforms. We intend to expand these relations further in the coming years and have encouraged Armenia to continue reforms across a range of issues, including economic development, the business environment, the judiciary, human rights, the fight against corruption and measures to ensure free and fair elections,” Tusk concluded.
