Nov.24 By Nigar Guliyeva - Trend: Joint declaration has been adopted at the 5th Eastern Partnership Summit in Brussels Nov.24.

Maja Kocijancic, Spokesperson for the EU Foreign Affairs and Security Policy/European Neighbourhood Policy and Enlargement Negotiations, tweeted about this Nov.24

The document was adopted by the heads of state or government and the representatives of Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Georgia, Moldova and Ukraine, the representatives of the European Union and the heads of state or government and representatives of its member states, who met in Brussels Nov. 24.

The President of the European Parliament and representatives of the Committee of the Regions, the European Economic and Social Committee, the European Investment Bank and the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development, the Conference of Regional and Local Authorities of the Eastern Partnership and the Euronest Parliamentary Assembly were also present at the Summit.

PanARMENIAN.Net reports, European Union leaders and six members of the Eastern Partnership have agreed on a final joint declaration at a summit in Brussels on Friday, November 24.

The final declaration, published on the European Council's website, does not mention any specific conflicts in the region.

But it states that the "summit participants remain deeply concerned about the continued violations of principles of international law in many parts of the region."

It adds that they welcome "the EU's strengthened role in conflict resolution and confidence building in the framework or in support of existing agreed negotiating formats and processes, including through field presence, when appropriate."

That language that was enough to secure approval from Armenia and Azerbaijan.

The final text of this year's declaration features the same language as the Riga declaration concerning the potential future EU accession of Georgia, Moldova, and Ukraine, each of which have signed Association Agreements with the 28-member bloc.
