Azerbaijan, EU to Sign Strategic Partnership Agreement

Azerbaijan and the European Union (EU) will launch negotiations on signing a new strategic partnership agreement starting from early 2017. The new agreement will define new directions of partnership between the two sides. 

The European Council adopted a mandate for the European Commission and the high representative for foreign affairs and security policy to negotiate, on behalf of the EU and its member states, a comprehensive agreement with Azerbaijan on November 14, 2016.

Currently, bilateral relations between the EU and Azerbaijan are regulated on the basis of an agreement on partnership and cooperation that was signed in 1996 and entered into force in 1999. The deal created a framework for the political relations between the two sides, as well as for bilateral trade and social and scientific cooperation between Azerbaijan and the 28-nation bloc.
