Eastern Partnership leaders to hold video conference today

EU and Eastern Partnership (EaP) heads of state and governments, as well as European institution leaders, will hold a meeting via videoconference on 18 June to highlight the strategic significance of the partnership and discuss long-term objectives, EuroActiv reported.

However, the virtual get-together of EU leaders and the six partner countries — Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Georgia, Moldova and Ukraine, — is set to produce no final declaration. An in-person summit is planned for early 2021.

The EU has provided over €640 million for immediate and short-term needs for the region amidst the pandemic, as well as long-term support such as the so-called “macro-financial assistance,” highly favourable loans designed to improve the macroeconomic stability of countries.
