YEREVAN, OCTOBER 14, ARMENPRESS. Minister of Foreign Affairs of Armenia Zohrab Mnatsakanyan will visit Luxembourg to participate in the October 15 EU Eastern Partnership Foreign Ministers meeting, the foreign ministry said.
The Eastern Partnership (EaP) ministerial meeting will bring together EU foreign ministers and their counterparts from the six Eastern Partnership countries (Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Georgia, the Republic of Moldova and Ukraine), as well as key stakeholders involved in the region, the European Council said in a press release.
The High Representative for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy Federica Mogherini will chair the meeting.
The meeting will provide an opportunity to resume the political dialogue between the EU and its Eastern partners.
Foreign ministers will also take stock of the implementation of the partnership's commitments, including the priorities identified as the '20 deliverables for 2020'.

They reaffirmed the EU's commitment to the region, to the reform agenda and to the priorities identified as the '20 deliverables for 2020'. They confirmed the relevance of the tailored-made and differentiated approach and underlined the need to step up reforms in several areas.
