Azerbaijan and the EU will hold the next round of talks on a new agreement in Baku on June 13-14, Azerbaijan’s Deputy Foreign Minister Mahmud Mammad-Guliyev told APA.
The deputy minister said that Luc Devigne, Director at the European External Action Service will arrive in Azerbaijan to attend the meeting.
“The negotiations will be conducted on two blocks - political security and trade,” he added.
In November 2016, the European Council adopted a mandate for the European Commission and the high representative for foreign affairs and security policy to negotiate, on behalf of the EU and its member states, a comprehensive agreement with Azerbaijan.
The new agreement should replace the 1996 partnership and cooperation agreement and should better take account of the shared objectives and challenges the EU and Azerbaijan face today.
