The leaders will assess the results achieved via the Eastern Partnership, which covers Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Georgia, Moldova and Ukraine, and approve steps aimed at making co-operation even more effective, the TASR newswire wrote. In addition, new aims should be defined in Warsaw for the partnership between the EU's 27 member states and the six countries of the partnership. The summit should contribute to the further development of the deep and comprehensive free trade area (DCFTA) between the EU and Ukraine. Slovak Foreign Affairs Minister Mikuláš Dzurinda recently expressed Slovakia's support for the project.
