"We will organize in coordination with the EU institutions a high-level conference in Brussels, on 14th of May, bringing together high-ranking officials from both the EU and the Eastern partners," Minister of Foreign Affairs of Romania Teodor Viorel Melescanu said in an exclusive interview with Report.
“This will be a moment for celebration and of stocktaking of the main merits of the EaP during its 10 years of existence. It will also be an excellent opportunity for EU Member States and Eastern Partners alike to come together, 10 years later, at the heart of Europe, and share their views on the future”, the minister noted.
The Eastern Partnership program was launched by the EU in 2009. Its main goal is the development of regional cooperation with six countries: Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Georgia, Moldova and Ukraine.
Notably, in this half of the year Romania chairs the Council of the European Union.
