The Council of the European Union adopted a Decision on 28 September 2018.
The Partnership and Cooperation Agreement between the European Communities and their Member States, of the one part, and Azerbaijan, of the other part, aims to provide an appropriate framework for the political dialogue and cooperation between the parties allowing the development of political relations. The Agreement entered into force on 1 July 1999.
The EU-Azerbaijan Cooperation Council examines any major issues arising within the framework of this Agreement and any other bilateral or international issues of mutual interest for the purpose of attaining the objectives of the Agreement.
The proposed Council Decision concerns the position to be taken on the Union's behalf in the Cooperation Council regarding the adoption of a Recommendation concerning the EU-Azerbaijan Partnership Priorities. The purpose of the envisaged act is to translate the goals of the revised European Neighbourhood Policy (ENP) to concrete areas of cooperation and to shape the agenda for regular political and sectoral dialogue.
