Khalaf Khalafov: Рђzerbaijan not outside EU вЂњNew Neighborhood PolicyвЂќ
Рђzerbaijan cannot be and will not stay outside the вЂњNew Neighborhood PolicyвЂќ of the European Union (EU), deputy Foreign Minister (FM) of Azerbaijan Khalaf Khalafov said in a statement, commenting on the statements of the Armenian officials that Azerbaijan may be not involved in this policy, Trend reports.
Deputy Foreign Minister evaluated these statements as вЂњpropagandaвЂќ. According to him, both Azerbaijan and EU are interested in even closer cooperation and this intention has been voiced by the EU top officials at the meetings with the AzerbaijanвЂ™s FM head Elmar Mammadyarov in Brussels.
The EU expert commission will pay a visit to Azerbaijan, aimed at preparation of the Individual Partnership Plan, the diplomat stressed.
