MINSK, 26 November (BelTA) – The dialogue between the Eurasian Economic Union and the European Union will improve the efficiency of the Eastern Partnership Initiative. The statement was made by Belarusian Deputy Minister of Foreign Affairs Alena Kupchyna during the meeting of heads of the foreign affairs ministries of the Eastern Partnership Initiative member states in Tbilisi, Georgia during the sixth round of informal ministerial talks, BelTA has learned.

According to the press service of the Belarusian Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Alena Kupchyna underlined the need for greater differentiation, for raising the performance of the Initiative by implementing concrete regional projects and via establishing a dialogue and enabling interaction between two integration associations — the Eurasian Economic Union and the European Union — for the sake of creating common economic space stretching from Lisbon to Vladivostok in the future.

The meeting focused primarily on the implementation of the Eastern Partnership Initiative and prospects of its further development after the Eastern Partnership Initiative's summit in Riga, including in view of the revision of the European Neighborhood Policy.

During the event the Belarusian Deputy Minister of Foreign Affairs met with heads of the delegations of other partnering states, Commissioner for European Neighborhood Policy and Enlargement Negotiations Johannes Hahn, and Deputy Secretary General of the European External Action Service Helga Schmid. A number of matters concerning bilateral and multilateral cooperation were discussed, including the development of relations between Belarus and the European Union, noted the source.
