Both sides reaffirm their determination to further strengthen the long term, forward-looking and broad based partnership for peace, development and prosperity. This partnership is rooted in shared values, principles, and commitments. The SEP would be based on the principles of the UN Charter, international norms and law, principles of mutual respect and trust, as well as common interests. It is also building upon the progress achieved so far under the Cooperation Agreement between the European Community and the Islamic Republic of Pakistan on partnership and development of 2004, as well as the EU-Pakistan Summit Joint Statements of 2009 and 2010, and the 5-Year Engagement Plan (2012 - 2017).
