We can also observe it in statistics,' the head of the delegation of the European Union (EU) to Azerbaijan Kestutis Jankauskas said commenting on the results of the events held in Brussels on the occasion of the 10th anniversary of the Eastern Partnership.

'As long as we have deeper cooperation, more opportunities and areas will be created inducing the future work," the ambassador said.

'The Eastern Partnership provides an opportunity for both bilateral and multilateral cooperation. At the closing ceremony, EU Commissioner Johannes Hahn noted that we will probably focus more on regular use of connections trade and digitial economy among the Eastern Partnership countries by themselves. There are many opportunities,' Jankauskas also added. 

Jankauskas noted that the high-level conference on the occasion of the 10th anniversary of the Eastern Partnership program had been held successfully, and young people had made proposals for future cooperation.

'Certainly, education will probably remain as our top priority,' the ambassador emphasized.

'Azerbaijani president Ilham Aliyev and the president of the European Council Donald Tusk discussed the relations between Azerbaijan and the EU in Brussels. The remaining work on the new agreement and the aviation agreement have also been discussed. We must continue our work. I hope that we will complete our work in near future without dwindling our pace. Those agreements will open up new opportunities,' Jankauskas added.
