Baku, Azerbaijan, Nov.24
By Leman Zeynalova - Trend:
The 5th Eastern Partnership (EaP) summit is all about taking stock and about finding the ways to tackle shared challenges together both in security and development, UK Prime Minister Theresa May said on the sidelines of the summit.
“I am looking forward today to renewed commitment from European countries to working together to tackle challenges both in security and development,” she added.
The 5th Eastern Partnership summit kicked off in Brussels on November 24.
Heads of state or government from the EU member states and the six Eastern partner countries will look forward to future cooperation.
They will also take stock of what has been achieved since the last summit in Riga in 2015, focusing on the tangible benefits delivered to the citizens of the six Eastern Partnership countries.
The summit will discuss how to further strengthen cooperation in the four priority areas agreed in Riga: stronger economy - economic development and better market opportunities; stronger governance - strengthening of institutions and good governance; stronger connectivity - enhancing interconnections, notably in the areas of transport and energy; stronger society - increasing mobility and contacts between people.
