European Union Delegation to Armenia

The EU upholds diplomatic relations with almost all states internationally. It has tactical partnerships with important global players, is intensely occupied with rising powers throughout the world, and has signalled mutual Association Agreements with many states in its neighbourhood. Overseas, the Union is symbolised by a system of 136 EU Delegations, which have comparable purposes to an embassy.

With the admission into cogency of the Lisbon Treaty in December 2010, EU institutes are experiencing immense changes, one of the important developments being the formation of the European External Action Service in January 2011. Now, commissions symbolize the European Union as a whole. Currently the Delegation to Armenia assists and consults with the Armenian authorities with a unified EU voice and directive.

The bilateral relations with Armenia are producing superior development. The EU is over halfway during consultations on an Association Agreement, while discussions on a Deep and Comprehensive Free Trade Agreement, on permit facilitation and on re-admission agreements will commence almost immediately. The Delegation's major position and purpose is to improve the two-sided affairs in all fields – political, financial, people-to-people, and to help the Armenian Government to apply reforms. Therefore, the EU aims to carry on functioning intimately with all equals: authorities, political parties, civil society, media, education institutions, and intercontinental organizations. The EU is determined to reach these objectives in the everyday labour in collaboration and affiliation with all the connections.
