After the meetings in Monaco in March and in San Marino last May, Antoni Martí Petit, Head of the Government of the Principality of Andorra, received his counterparts Serge Telle, Minister of State and Nicola Renzi, Minister of Foreign Affairs, Political Affairs and Justice of the Republic of San Marino, in Andorra, on November 20 and 21 for further discussions.

These now regular meetings serve to strengthen tripartite cooperation between the states with which the European Union opened negotiations in 2015 with a view to concluding an Association Agreement. In particular, they aim to better understand the specificities of each State, in order to identify complementarities and strengthen coordination in the negotiations.

The three heads of government were also received in Private Audience by HE Joan Enric Vives, Archbishop of Urgell, Co-Prince of Andorra. Later they held a press conference at the Andorran National Auditorium and were interviewed by Andorran Television, AndoraDiffusio, for a programme dedicated to Europe.

Monaco’s Minister of State declared, “Europe wants (the) Europeans that we are. We will not give up what we are. (…) We are different but we also have common issues (…). These meetings serve to go into the details of what we must preserve, on the understanding that these association agreements will only be possible if they are individualised. We are working on these and on the best way to make them consistent and acceptable to the European Union, which is listening to us.”
