RIGA, May 22 /TASS/. European Council President Donald Tusk told a news conference after the Eastern Partnership summit in Riga that he had talked to Azerbaijan’s President Ilkham Aliev by telephone on Friday.
"I phoned [Aliev] after the session. We did not discuss the declaration. As you know we adopted it jointly," Tusk told journalists.
"We talked about new instruments and new approaches. Azerbaijan is set to develop and even strengthen cooperation with the European Union," the European Council president said.
"We do not have any doubts," Tusk added.
As reported earlier, Baku had certain objections to the text of the Eastern Partnership summit in Riga in the paragraph on the situation in the mostly Armenian populated enclave of Nagorno Karabakh.
