VILNIUS, November 29. /ITAR-TASS/. The European Union’s Eastern Partnership program is to become a natural bridge of economic integration from the Atlantic to the Pacific Ocean, Armenian President Serzh Sargsyan said on Friday at the Eastern Partnership summit in Vilnius.
“In this sense, we are determined to take further effort to build a wide Europe, free from division lines,” he said. “This is what we are guided by in our external relations and are trying to solve problems with our neighbors based on this principle, using Europe’s successful experience of reconciliation.”
“our key goal is to form in the European Union such efficient mechanisms that, on the one hand, reflect the profound nature of our socio-political and economic relations, and that are compatible with other cooperation formats, on the other,” the Armenian president noted. “The five-year history of the Eastern Partnership programme proves the expediency and viability of this format. It efficiently complements the architecture of European cooperation, making it possible to build new, closer and broader relations on the basis of common European values.”
“The formation of such relations is the call of the spiritual, cultural, historic and political heritage of Armenia and the Armenian people, an inherent need of our society,” Sargsyan said. “Expectations from the Vilnius summit are big. We consider this summit as a major stage of the development of our relations with the European Union on a more realistic basis. With this in mind, we are signing the declaration with the European Union.
