Federica Mogherini, High Representative for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy/Vice-President of the European Commission, met today with Nikol Pashinyan, Prime Minister of the Republic of Armenia in Brussels.

They discussed the importance of implementing the EU-Armenia Comprehensive and Enhanced Partnership Agreement to underpin domestic reform in Armenia, for which Federica Mogherini confirmed the European Union’s full support. They also exchanged on the prospects for opening a visa liberalisation dialogue between the EU and Armenia.

High Representative Mogherini and Prime Minister Pashinyan took stock of a peaceful settlement of the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict in light of recent contacts between Armenia and Azerbaijan. High Representative Mogherini advocated Prime Minister Pashinyan’s full engagement in negotiations without preconditions, under the auspices of the Minsk Group Co-Chairs.

Federica Mogherini and Nikol Pashinyan finally had an exchange on broader regional dynamics.
