The foreign ministers of Austria, Lithuania, and Romania, Austria, Lithuania, Romania Alexander Challenberg, Gabrielius Landsbergis, and Bogdan Aurescu visited the South Caucasus on June 25-26 to express EU support for Azerbaijan, Georgia, and Armenia in the run-up to the Eastern Partnership summit, which is scheduled for December this year.
