I am happy to have this meeting of the Partnership Council with Armenia. This is done in a difficult situation. We know how the situation in Ukraine is affecting the whole world, and in particular the region. But it is also a moment to continue working on reforms and to fully develop this comprehensive and enhanced Partnership Agreement.
Our bilateral relations with Armenia are very good, but there are still reforms to be done. And this meeting will be a good occasion to encourage Armenia to continue in the European path, to continue working in order to fulfill all the purposes and objectives of this Partnership Agreement.
To have this Partnership Council is also a good occasion for the Armenian side to know from us how we perceive the situation in Ukraine, how we perceive the consequences of this.”
