The Council of the European Union adopted on 11 May 2020 a set of conclusions relating to the Eastern Partnership (EaP) policy beyond 2020.
These conclusions reaffirm the policy's strategic importance, and joint commitment to building a common area of shared democracy, prosperity and stability. The Council welcomes the achievements of the EaP to date, and reiterates its incentive- and conditionality-based approach as a means to encourage Eastern partner countries to continue engaging in reforms and increasing efforts in this regard. It also confirms the validity of the existing policy framework.
The Council also stressed the importance of the future Eastern Partnership being a more strategic, ambitious, flexible and inclusive framework for cooperation. The conclusions call firmly for a renewed commitment to the fundamentals of the Eastern Partnership. The Council also looks forward to the next Eastern Partnership Summit.
