BAKU, February 8 (Itar-Tass) — The European Union pledges to sign a free trade zone agreement with Azerbaijan after its accession to the World Trade Organisation (WTO), head of the EU Office in Baku Roland Kobia said.
As soon as Azerbaijan joins the WTO, the European Union intends to sign an agreement on a free trade zone with it, Kobia told journalists on Wednesday.
The 9th round of talks between Azerbaijan and the WTO group is scheduled to take place in Geneva on February 14.
Azerbaijan has an observer status in the WTO since 1997. The accession talks started in 2004. As of today the WTO accession talks have ended and the corresponding protocols have been signed with Turkey, Oman, the United Arab Emirates (UAE) and Georgia. Azerbaijan continues talks with the United States, Japan, Brazil, Ecuador, Sri Lanka and other member-countries, as well as with the European Union.
