The Comprehensive Extended Partnership Agreement between Armenia and the European Union enters into force today, which presupposes much deeper political cooperation between Armenia and the European family.

Welcoming this important milestone, high-ranking EU officials note that it coincided with a difficult period in Armenia, the best way out of which is a commitment to democracy and human rights.

“The purpose of the agreement is to contribute to overcoming the challenges related to Armenia’s reforms in the political, economic and trade spheres, to make positive changes in people’s lives,” said the High Representative for Foreign Affairs of EU Josep Borrell.

This agreement between Armenia and the European Union was signed in 2017. It took about 3 years to ratify it. According to the Armenian government, official Yerevan has about 8 years to implement all the points of the document.
