There are no obstacles for European countries (Spain, Portugal and Greece) to ratify the Comprehensive and Enhanced Partnership Agreement with Armenia. This is what Minister of Foreign Affairs of Armenia Zohrab Mnatsakanyan said during Thursday’s discussion on the 2019 State Budget performance report at the joint session of the standing committees of the National Assembly.
According to the minister, the EU-Armenia Comprehensive and Enhanced Partnership Agreement remains the legal ground for Armenia’s relations with the EU. “It is a major tool for implementation of the programs for reforms adopted by the Armenian government. Currently, Armenia is close to the end of the process of ratification and anticipates ratification by Spain, Portugal and Greece, and there are no political obstacles,” Mnatsakanyan said, adding that Austria and Italy have already ratified the Agreement amid the coronavirus pandemic.
