European Parliament’s Committee on Foreign Affairs starts a three-day session on Tuesday.

The issues related to the South Caucasus are included in the agenda. During the Thursday meeting the European lawmakers will have to approve two recommendation documents on the South Caucasus.

In particular, there is recommendation on the negotiations of the EU-Armenia and EU-Azerbaijan Association Agreements.

The draft bill on Armenia was introduced by Polish rapporteur Tomasz Piotr Poreba.

One of the points says if concluded, the agreement applies to the whole territory of Armenia.

Another provision says the EU will support the efforts of the Minsk Group and “clear the way for the implementation of confidence-building measures, as the Presidents of both Azerbaijan and Armenia have agreed.”

The document emphasise the need for a sustainable economy, including through the promotion of renewable energy sources.

It calls to ensure that the development of the energy sector is carried out in accordance with the EU’s environmental standards, particularly in the nuclear sector, noting that the situation of the Medzamor nuclear power plant remains a topic of major concern and that a specific date for its decommissioning should be set.
