Video conference of the Eastern Partnership foreign affairs ministers, 11 June 2020

Agenda highlights

The ministers will have an informal exchange ahead of the upcoming Eastern Partners leaders' video conference.

Their discussion will centre around the Joint Communication on the Eastern Partnership (EaP) beyond 2020 and its five long-term policy objectives: economy and connectivity; accountable institutions; rule of law and security; the green and digital transformations; and fair and inclusive societies.

They will also review the new proposal to the Joint Communication to reinforce cooperation in the areas of wellbeing and health, with an explicit reference to public health and the COVID-19 pandemic.

The ministers will also focus on the EU’s support to the EaP partner countries in the fight against COVID-19, which involves addressing both immediate health sector-related needs, as well as long term socio-economic impacts.  

A joint press conference is expected to start around 16:30 Brussels time, i.e. 18:30 Yerevan time today. You can watch the live event here
