“And in this regard we are satisfied with the results. We gathered to celebrate the 10th anniversary of Eastern Partnership, and in fact I think quite a successful event took place, we have summed up the actions taken during these ten years, as well as the cooperation, we had a chance to outline what will take place for the next stage. The delegations of the six partners of Eastern Partnership held quite interesting and important discussions, assessing all challenges and approaches. In this sense I think it was quite a successful process, a successful event”, the Armenian FM said.

The FM highlighted the approach of diversified cooperation, and stated that Armenia as well builds its policy based on its interests. “What assessments now we can give for the next stage, we are guided first of all by our interests.
