EU deems 2013 Armenia election as important for further ties

October 23, 2012 Leave a comment Go to comments

The upcoming presidential election in Armenia is important for further relations between the European Union and the South Caucasus nation, according to Head of the EU Delegation to Armenia Traian Hristea.

At a Monday meeting with journalists Hristea said that the EU expected Armenia to ensure that the vote scheduled for February 2013 is “in line with international standards”.

“Armenia should therefore address effectively the shortcomings identified by the OSCE Office for Democratic Institutions and Human Rights during the May 2012 parliamentary elections,” the diplomat said.

Hristea underscored that the EU will continue to be guided by the principle of “more for more” meaning that the more reforms are carried out by partner states the more assistance they may count for.
