"The European Union successfully cooperates with the government of Azerbaijan both bilaterally and within the framework of the Council of Europe."
APA reports that Peter Mikhalko, the head of the EU Representation in Azerbaijan, said this in a speech at the event dedicated to 20 years of cooperation between Azerbaijan and the Council of Europe, organized jointly by the Office of the Council of Europe in Baku, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Republic of Azerbaijan and ADA University.
He said that EU and CE share the same values and these are the rule of law, democracy and human rights.
The ambassador said 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."
