EU-Azerbaijan aviation deal may be signed soon, says deputy minister


The agreement on the common aviation space between the European Union (EU) and Azerbaijan may be signed soon, Azerbaijani Deputy Foreign Minister Mahmud Mammad-Guliyev told Trend.

"The work on the aviation agreement is underway, and it is not excluded that it will be initialed in the near future," said Mammad-Guliyev.

He did not rule out that the agreement may be signed during the European Union’s Eastern Partnership summit, which will be held in Brussels on November 24.

The basic principles of the agreement have already been agreed upon, said Head of the EU Delegation to Azerbaijan Kestutis Jankauskas in late October following the third round of negotiations on the aviation agreement.

The creation of common airspace is an initiative of the European Commission.
