PanARMENIAN.Net - Armenian prime minister Karen Karapetyan and EU ambassador Piotr Switalsky on Friday, September 8 discussed issues concerning the new framework agreement that the country and the 27-state bloc are going to sign in November.

"I'd like to stress that the EU is and has always been one of the most important partners on Armenia's foreign policy agenda," Karapetyan said.

Switalsky said, in turn, that the EU will do everything to ensure closer cooperation with Armenia.
