Deputy Foreign Minister of Azerbaijan Mahmud Mammad-Guliyev has arrived in Yerevan to attend the third Informal Eastern Partnership Dialogue in Yerevan, Armenia, on 13 September, ahead of the Eastern Partnership Summit in Vilnius in November.
Azerbaijan's Ambassador to the EU Fuad Iskenderov will also attend the meeting.
On September 3, Armenian President Serzh Sargsyan confirmed Armenia's intention to join the Customs Union and contribute to the process of formation of the Eurasian Union. Vladimir Putin supported Sargsyan's
decision and promised to contribute to Yerevan's accession to the Customs Union in every possible way. Since 2010 Yerevan has been negotiating on Association Agreement (AA) and Deep and Comprehensive
Free Trade Area (DCFTA) with the EU. Armenia was expected to initial the AA/DCFTA during the Eastern Partnership summit in Vilnius.
