Bulgarian Foreign Minister Zaharieva Participates in Batumi International Conference

Bulgarian Foreign Minister Zaharieva Participates in Batumi International Conference

11.7.2019
July 11 (BTA) - "The countries from the Eastern Partnership have achieved significant results but there is more to be done. The partners should continue moving forward but the European Union should also have a vision for the future of the Eastern Partnership - what will follow after 2020," Bulgarian Deputy Prime Minister and Foreign Minister Ekaterina Zaharieva said Thursday, cited by her Ministry. She is taking part in the 16th Batumi International Conference Dedicated to the 10th Anniversary of the Eastern Partnership in Georgia. The forum gathered senior politicians from EU Member States and from the six Eastern Partnership (EaP) partner countries, as well as representatives of the business, the academic circles and the non-governmental sector. Ekaterina Zaharieva discussed the achievements and European future of the EaP countries with her counterparts from Sweden, Poland and the Czech Republic. "The Eastern Partnership is a very good goodneighbourly initiative aimed at building bridges and increasing connectivity between the countries," Zaharieva noted, adding that the initiative changed the mentality of these countries but that they still face the challege of building stability within their societies. Among the achievements of the EaP, Zaharieva underlined the Association Agreement/Deep and Comprehensive Free Trade Area Agreement signed in 2014 between the EU and three of the partner countries, Georgia, Moldova and Ukraine, as well as the partnership agreements with Armenia and Azerbaijan. She also emphasized on the waived visas for the citizens of Moldova, Georgia and Ukraine, and the relaxed visa regime for those of Armenia and Azerbaijan. "Trade between the EU and the EaP partners has strongly increased in the past years, and thousands of young people from these countries received their education in the EU," Minister Zaharieva recalled. She noted the key importance of teaching young people critical thinking for the development of democracy. "We must fight every day for democracy. The EU is the best place for living but we must do more, and young people have a very important role for this," she said. Zaharieva pointed out that Bulgaria is a strong supporter of the EU expansion and that it depends not only on the EU but also on the countries that apply for membership. She also noted Georgia's serious progress in the past years, outlining the importance of a justice reform and the development of civil society for the country's progress on its path to European integration.
