“Tangible achievements at the upcoming summit in Brussels will be important for further viability of the Eastern Partnership. In this regard, we attach importance to the initiative of adding a political charge to sector cooperation and to the focus on discussions about infrastructure ties,” Minister Nalbandian said.
