"This year the festival is very significant and interesting for two reasons. First, this year marks the 10th anniversary of the Eastern Partnership program. Secondly, we are already at the final stage on the issue of concluding a new agreement between Azerbaijan and the EU. In addition, Europe Day is celebrated annually in May, and Republic Day in Azerbaijan. And we want to celebrate these dates together, ”the ambassador noted.
