EU allocates additional EUR 25 mln to Armenia
The second EU–Armenia Partnership Council took place in Brussels on 13 June.
The Council reaffirmed the commitment of the EU and Armenia to implement the Comprehensive and Enhanced Partnership Agreement (CEPA) effectively. The CEPA implementation roadmap, adopted by Armenia on 1 June 2019 following consultations with civil society, was welcomed by the Council as an important tool underpinning reforms in the country.
The Council recalled that the EU had earmarked more than EUR 160 million in assistance for Armenia for the period 2017–2020. In recognition of Armenia's determination to pursue a reform agenda and to implement the CEPA effectively, the EU will allocate an additional EUR 25 million in the context of its 2019 Annual Action Plan of assistance for Armenia.
The EU and Armenia will continue working closely together to monitor progress and to ensure the successful implementation of the CEPA, including through the use of EU assistance.
