As part of his official visit to Brussels, Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan of Armenia met on Tuesday with Federica Mogherini, EU High Representative for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy and Vice President of the European Commission, his office said.

Welcoming the PM’s visit to Brussels, Mogherini stressed the importance of closer cooperation with Armenia. She reaffirmed the European Union’s readiness to continue supporting the democratic reforms in Armenia aimed at strengthening the rule of law, the protection of human rights, the fight against corruption, economic progress, to name a few.

PM Pashinyan noted that the European Union is a reliable partner for Armenia. He emphasized that the political changes in the country have strengthened the ties between Armenia and the EU, which share the same values. The PM said that Armenia and the European Union boast a high-level political dialogue as evidenced by reciprocated top-level visits. Pashinyan added that his government is eager to continue and develop effective cooperation in areas of mutual interest.

The parties discussed issues related to the EU-Armenia Comprehensive and Enhanced Partnership Agreement (CEPA), visa liberalization, EU assistance to the reforms initiated by the Armenian government and the agenda of bilateral cooperation.
