The European Commission intends to open its Delegation in Baku in 2007, Alan Waddams, the EC Special Envoy to the Republic of Azerbaijan, told Trend in an exclusive interview.
The Delegation or representative office will fulfill the functions of anembassy and be involved in issues that fall under the EC competence. These are political and economic issues, the implementation of an Action Plan on New Neighborhood Policy and other actions. The difference between this office and the Europa House currently existing in Azerbaijan, will be its involvement in the fulfillment of diplomatic and representational functions, whereas Europa House is more a technical office dealing with economic issues.
Waddams stated that the Head of Delegation would be appointed in due course.
