YEREVAN, October 6 (Itar-Tass) —— The South Caucasus is a strategic region for the European Union, French President Nicolas Sarkozy said.
“South Caucasus is a strategic region for the European Union and associative and partner ties with the European Union will facilitate prosperity, strengthening of democracy and dialogue in all three Caucasus countries,” Sarkozy said in an interview with the Mediamax news agency ahead of his visit to Yerevan to begin on Thursday, October 6.
“France wants the European Union to establish closer relations with the countries of the region, beginning with Armenia,” he stressed.
“The European Union has recently reinforced its role in the South Caucasus and I am very glad about it. At first, the EU did it through the European Neighborhood Policy, and then within the Eastern Partnership which France backed from the very beginning,” the president said.
