EU Relationships with other Countries and Neighborhood Policy
EU relations with Armenia are governed by the EU -Armenia Partnership- and Cooperation Agreement ,signed in 1996 and entered into force in 1999.
Following the enlargement of the European Union, the EU launched the European Neighbourhood Policy (ENP) and Armenia became part of this policy in 2004. On the basis of a Country Report ( published in March 2005) an ENP Action Plan was discussed by the Commission and the Armenian government and finally adopted on November 14, 2006.
The main EU co-operation objectives, policy responses and priority fields can be found in the Country Strategy Paper 2007-2013 [2, p.234 - 236]. On the basis of bilateral priorities, also a National Indicative Programme (NIP) has been adopted in agreement with the Armenian authorities. The NIP covers the period from 2007-2010. For this period an indicative total sum of €98,4 million has been allocated; in addition to the ENPI national programme, Armenia will also benefit from the ENPI regional and interregional programmes, plus a number of thematic programmes such as the European Instrument for Democracy and Human Rights - EIDHR.
EU relations with Azerbaijan are governed by the EU –Azerbaijan Partnership and Cooperation Agreement, signed in 1996 and entered into force in 1999.
Belarus has the opportunity to be an active partner of the EU in the framework of the European Neighbourhood Policy (ENP), provided that the country embarks on fundamental democratic and economic reforms to bring the country closer to European common values.[2, p.240]
The EU's offer to re-engage with Belarus was set out in the document What the EU could bring to Belarus , which the Commission released in November 2006 and which offers Belarus to enter a full partnership, as part of the European Neighbourhood Policy, provided that Belarus takes convincing steps towards democratisation, respect for human rights and the rule of law.
