Azerbaijan considers the EU an important partner - Ilham Aliyev


November 25, Fineko/ Azerbaijan considers the European Union an important partner.

ABC.AZ reports that President Ilham Aliyev stated about this at international conference "Along the Middle Corridor: Geopolitics, Security and Economics" at ADA University.

"Now we are at the final stage of consultations on a new agreement with the EU. It is more than 90% ready. We haven’t signed an Association Agreement with the EU. Instead, we preferred the format of bilateral cooperation," the president said.

Speaking about the Eastern Partnership, he stressed that Azerbaijan considers this partnership to be one of the elements of cooperation with the EU, and not a platform for cooperation with EU member states.
