YEREVAN, Dec. 14 – Armenia will sign a visa facilitation agreement
with the European Union (EU) next Monday, Armenian Foreign Minister
Edward Nalbandian said Friday.

The deal is expected to make it easier for Armenian youth and cultural
figures to obtain EU entrance visas, Nalbandian told a press

Huge progress has also been made in negotiations over the Association
Agreement with the EU, he said.

A free trade area is expected to be launched by next November, he added.

Armenia is one of the six countries in the EU’s Eastern Partnership
program initiated in 2009, which was designed to provide a forum for
discussing visa agreements, free trade deals, and strategic
partnership agreements with the EU’s eastern neighbors.
