The agreement on association of Armenia with the EU will not be initialed in Vilnius summit of Eastern Partnership, European Commissioner for Enlargement and European Neighborhood Policy Stefan Fule stated on Thursday in Yerevan at the press-conference on results of unofficial meeting of Foreign Ministers from member states of Eastern Partnership, Mediamax agency reported.
Stefan Fule noted that EU intends to sign an Association Agreement with Ukraine and to initial it with Georgia and Moldavia at the Vilnius summit.
"When coming to Armenia, after declaring accession to the Customs Union, Armenia didn't have an opportunity to initial the agreement on which we held negotiations for three and a half years," Stefan Fule stated.
He stressed that an Association Agreement is a single document consisting of two parts.
According to him, during negotiations with Armenia, the document was a single whole and it is impossible to divide it into parts.
"I arrived in Armenia in order to hear and to understand the intentions of our Armenian colleagues, their desires and preferences. If they want to form a legal format which will give opportunity for us to go further, than it Is possible through the current Agreement on Partnership and Cooperation, we will be glad to work within this format," the European Commissar stated.
Last week, Armenian President Serzh Sargsyan declared the country's decision to join the Customs Union and take the necessary practical steps in this direction and later to participate in the formation of the Eurasian Economic Union.
Russian President Vladimir Putin has supported the decision and expressed Russia's readiness to fully contribute to the process.
