EU Lawmakers Push For More Robust Eastern Partnership

EU lawmakers are pushing for an end to international data roaming charges between the EU and Georgia, Moldova, and Ukraine, a trust fund for Ukrainian investment, and possibly more sanctions on Russia ahead of a summit in Brussels in November. Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty reports.

According to a draft report of the European Parliament’s recommendations to other EU institutions such as the European Commission and the European Council regarding the Eastern Partnership (Eap) in the run-up to the Eastern Partnership summit in Brussels in November, the chamber wants “an attractive ‘EaP+’ model for associated countries” that could include such things as “additional unilateral tariff preferences, the abolition of roaming tariffs between the partners and the EU, and the development of high-capacity broadband.”

The paper, which was seen by RFE/RL, also states that the EaP+ model could be offered to the other three Eastern Partnership countries — Armenia, Azerbaijan, and Belarus — “once they are ready for such enhanced commitments.”
