Baku, Azerbaijan, Nov. 16
By Maksim Tsurkov – Trend:
A mission of the Directorate-General for Mobility and Transport (DG MOVE) of the European Commission, the EU’s executive body, will visit Azerbaijan until late 2016, Malena Mard, head of the EU delegation in Azerbaijan, told Trend Nov. 16.
She said there are no exact dates regarding the signing of the Open Skies Agreement between Azerbaijan and the EU so far, but the sides plan to work more intensively on the sphere of transportation.
The DG MOVE mission is expected to arrive in about three weeks to have talks in Azerbaijan, Mard said.
There are many issues on the agenda on which it is necessary to cooperate, she noted.
She went on to add that this is the second mission of the DG MOVE to Azerbaijan.
The first mission visited Azerbaijan about a month ago, Mard said.
She expressed hope that Azerbaijan and the EU will lay a good foundation for cooperation, because transportation is an important segment of interaction.
