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.
