A prosperous, sovereign, and democratic Armenia is seen as a vital contributor to regional stability and prosperity

The President of the European Commission, Ursula von der Leyen, the EU High Representative/Vice President, Josep Borrell, the Secretary of State of the United States of America, Antony Blinken, USAID Administrator Samantha Power, and the Prime Minister of the Republic of Armenia, Nikol Pashinyan, convened on April 5, 2024, in Brussels to reiterate their backing for Armenia's sovereignty, democracy, territorial integrity, and socio-economic resilience. The European Union and the United States stand together in advocating for a stable, peaceful, secure, democratic, and prosperous future for Armenia and the wider region. They aim to deepen collaboration to bolster Armenia's resilience across various sectors, including political reforms, economic development, and humanitarian aid. Expansion of partnerships is envisaged, particularly in areas such as mobility, governance, law enforcement, trade, connectivity, agriculture, energy, and technology.

Acknowledging Armenia's significant progress since 2018 in democratic and justice reforms and combating corruption, the EU and the US express their dedication to continuing support for Armenia's strengthening of democracy and the rule of law, aligned with shared values and principles. The EU pledges ongoing support for Armenia's reform journey through the Comprehensive and Enhanced Partnership Agreement (CEPA), and both parties will advance the new EU-Armenia Partnership Agenda to deepen cooperation across all domains. The United States commits to aiding Armenia and Prime Minister Pashinyan in implementing envisaged reforms, with plans to allocate over $65 million in development assistance for fiscal year 2023.
