December 3, 2012 Leave a comment Go to comments

President Serzh Sarkisian reassured the European Union over the weekend that Armenia’s forthcoming presidential election, in which he will be seeking a second five-year term, will be free and fair.

Speaking after talks in Yerevan with European Commission President Jose Manuel Barroso, Sarkisian also said his government expects to complete by the end of next year ongoing negotiations with the EU on a far-reaching “association agreement.”

“I assured Mr. Barroso that we are committed to holding in February 2013 presidential elections meeting the highest international standards,” he told a joint news conference.

“We agreed that it is critically important that the next presidential elections are impeccable,” Barroso, who runs the EU’s Brussels-based executive body, said for his part.
