Pashinyan, Tusk discuss ratification of agreement on Armenia-EU expanded partnership, visa liberalization

YEREVAN. July 10 (Interfax) - The talks with European Council President Donald Tusk in Yerevan were effective, Armenian Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan said.

"We have conducted effective talks and discussions, we addressed Armenian-EU relations, we exchanged opinions on sectoral cooperation, on internal life in Armenia and regional development issues," Pashinyan said at a briefing after meeting with Tusk.

The talks addressed "prompt ratification" of the Armenia-EU Comprehensive and Enhanced Partnership Agreement and visa liberalization, he said.

Pashinyan also said he had confirmed Yerevan's commitment to supremacy of law and the right against corruption.

"We discussed reforms in Armenia and the creation of an independent judicial and legal system too. Armenia attaches importance to the assistance from the European organizations in this issue," Pashinyan said.

Tusk, in turn, said the positive dynamics in Armenia create good preconditions for the development of relations with the EU.
