Will also look how our aid portfolio can be even more targeted on most pressing reforms," Khan wrote on Twitter.
In early June, the European Commission announced that the CEPA came into effect on a preliminary basis. The deal has already been ratified by Armenia, Lithuania, Latvia, Estonia, Poland, Luxembourg, Bulgaria, and the process of ratification by other EU member sates is ongoing. The accord will come into effect after it is ratified by all member states and several other EU procedures are completed.
Pashinyan became Armenian Prime Minister in early May following nationwide protests against his predecessor Serzh Sargsyan. During the protests, as well as after taking his post, Pashinyan has promised a range of political and economic changes in the country.
