"Each and every of our partner countries is the master of its own success in getting closer to the EU," stated Fule prior to the visit.

The EU is offering through the Eastern Partnership closer economic integration, deeper political cooperation through the proposal to engage in negotiations of Association Agreements with the partner countries.

The visit is believed to provide one more opportunity to stress the EU intention to take forward the broad agenda it has developed with the three countries in the context of the Eastern Partnership, the statement said.

Armenia, Azerbaijan and Georgia each have an action plan under the ENP, designed to help, inter alia, their closer trade and economic integration with the EU, in particular through gradual regulatory alignment.

The implementation of the action plans should also enable the countries to progressively become ready to negotiate, implement and sustain a deep and comprehensive free trade area with the EU.
