"The European Union successfully cooperates with the government of Azerbaijan both in a bilateral format and within the framework of the Council of Europe."
APA informs that this was said by the head of the EU Delegation in Azerbaijan, Peter Mikhalko, at an event dedicated to 20 years of cooperation between Azerbaijan and the Council of Europe, jointly organized by the Baku Office of the Council of Europe, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Republic of Azerbaijan and ADA University.
He said that the EU and the CoE share the same values and these are the rule of law, democracy and human rights.
The ambassador noted that the two organizations benefit from each other's experience: "As you know, in July of this year, the EU and Azerbaijan signed a Memorandum of Understanding on strategic partnership in the field of energy.
Currently, the EU and Azerbaijan are discussing a new partnership agreement.
This new document will allow us to further expand our cooperation and cover new spheres."
