Recalling the statements on the earliest peaceful settlement of conflicts reflected in the Prague and Warsaw Declarations, the Vilnius Summit participants welcome the EU's intention to strengthen its contribution to encourage progress in further promoting stability and multilateral confidence building: “They welcome the EU's strengthened role in conflict resolution and confidence building efforts in the framework or in support of existing agreed formats and processes, including through field presence when appropriate.”

They emphasise the need for the earliest peaceful settlement of the conflicts on the basis of the principles and norms of international law: “They welcome the recent meeting in Vienna between the Presidents of Armenia and Azerbaijan with the Co-Chairs of the OSCE Minsk Group and the Presidents' agreement to advance the negotiations toward a peaceful settlement of the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict.”

The Eastern Partnership summit took place in Vilnius on November 28-29. The summit was attended by the EU officials, heads of state of 27 EU and 6 Eastern Partnership member states.
