High Representative for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy/Vice-President of the European Commission, Federica Mogherini, said: “We have stepped up our cooperation with Azerbaijan, which is a key partner in our neighbourhood. The negotiations on a comprehensive new EU-Azerbaijan agreement are entering a decisive phase and we will keep working hard to achieve a modern agreement that addresses all aspects of our relationship, and that benefits citizens from both the European Union and Azerbaijan”.

A new comprehensive EU-Azerbaijan agreement would offer the opportunity to further broaden our areas of cooperation. Since the last Cooperation Council in February 2018, the EU and Azerbaijan have made significant progress in the negotiations.

Recent reforms and Azerbaijan's wider modernisation agenda in sectors such as agriculture, tourism, education and transport contribute to the diversification of the economy and support Azerbaijan's ambition to become a transport and logistics hub.
