The Council of the EU adopted on 17 June a new EU policy framework in the region that focuses on promoting resilience, prosperity and regional cooperation in Central Asia, and welcomed the strengthening of relations between the EU and Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan and Uzbekistan since the adoption of the first EU strategy for Central Asia in 2007.
The Council reaffirmed its commitment to implement Enhanced Partnership and Cooperation Agreements with the interested countries of the region to undertake reforms in democracy, human rights, the rule of law and the economy; and emphasized the strategic role of Central Asia in Euro-Asian connectivity, as well as the joint interest of the EU and of Central Asian states to promote peace in Afghanistan.
