Dear Visitor,

Welcome to the website of the European Union´s Delegation to Armenia. We hope the information it contains will help you to better understand the activities of the EU and particularly the role of the Delegation in Armenia. You can also explore here the projects that we implement and see in which sectors the EU is engaged in Armenia.

I started my mission in Armenia in September 2015. I joined the Delegation team with a strong desire to further deepen and strengthen EU-Armenia relations.

Armenia is an important partner of the EU, being part of our Neighbourhood. Since 2004, there have been significant changes in the EU's Southern and Eastern neighbourhood. European Neighbourhood Policy has therefore undergone a review to allow the EU and its neighbours to build more effective partnerships. The EU will pursue its interests which include promotion of universal values. The EU's own stability is built on democracy, human rights, the rule of law, economic openness and the new ENP will make stabilisation its main political priority. In May 2015, the Eastern Partnership Summit in Riga demonstrated that the EU continues to engage with all six of our independent and sovereign partner countries, whatever their individual level of ambition in terms of relations with the EU. During 2016, the EU and partner countries, including Armenia, will jointly define the so-called Partnership Priorities.

The beginning of my work in the EU Delegation was very well timed. The EU and Armenia opened negotiations on a new overarching framework for deepening of our relations. And I am delighted to witness and to be part of this process.

Now, let me wish you interesting reading and thank you again for your interest in the EU.
