Brussels: European Commissioner for Neighborhood Policy and Extension Johannes Hahn said that he will carry out a working visit to Armenia on October 2 to meet with high-ranking officials of the country and will prepare for the Eastern Partnership summit in Armenia scheduled for November 24.

The last summit of the Eastern Partnership was held on August 31 in Budapest. The summit was held jointly with the countries of the Visegrad Four. The European project "Eastern Partnership" is aimed at expanding EU cooperation with Azerbaijan, Belarus, Ukraine, Armenia, Georgia and Moldova. In 2011, due to the refusal to invite Alexander Lukashenko to the summit, this country refused to participate in one of the summits.
