EU dissatisfied with Eastern Partnership2011-05-19 18:31
In the opinion of the President of European Parliament Jerzy Buzek, not so much has been done under the Eastern Partnership program as the organization had expected, GHN reports.gt-en-newsitem-inside
"Our expectations were not met, especially in the issues of law supremacy, freedom of media, independent court growth, electoral environment improvement and cooperation between the authorities and the opposition", - he remarked.
Let us remind you that the Eastern Partnership program is aimed at rapprochement between EU, Azerbaijan, Armenia, Georgia, Moldavia, Byelorussia and Ukraine.
The project implies the appropriation of 600 million euro to the specified countries by the European Union before 2013; the money will be spent on strengthening the state institutions, exercising border control and rendering assistance to minor companies.
The Eastern Partnership program does not implement the possibility of membership in EU but implies political and economical rapprochement with this regional organization, including the facilitation of the visa regime and cooperation in the field of energy.
