BAKU, November 15 (Itar-Tass) —— The deepening of EU-Azerbaijan relations has exclusive significance, EU High Representative for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy Catherine Ashton told a Tuesday press conference in Baku.
In her words, this cooperation must meet the interests of both sides.
Ashton described Azerbaijan as an important partner in the provision of European energy security. The Eastern Partnership program is an illustrative example of cooperation based on universal values, and this visit to Azerbaijan and the South Caucasus shows what significance the European Union attaches to this region, she said.
The EU supports the activity of the OSCE Minsk Group, which mediates the settlement of the Karabakh conflict, she said. By appointing its representative for Karabakh, the EU offered its support to the peace process, she added. The EU is ready to assist the confidence building measures if that is necessary, she said.
