EU has not invited Azerbaijan's Foreign Ministry to the upcoming Eastern Partnership summit, while inviting Armenian leadership for the first time at a highest levels. The Partnership has also refrained from including a language in the declaration about "territorial integrity of Azerbaijan and occupied territories". Azerbaijan will be able to participate in the meeting through an ambassador in the form of a guest. This has caused an uproar in Azerbaijan, which demanded answers from EU. The latter said Azerbaijan has not properly participated in prior meetings, which has jeopardized their seat in the next summit which is to be held on December 10-12. EU could still send them an invitation until that date. http://www.turan.az/ext/news/2018/11/free/politics%20news/en/76859.htm ---- http://azeridaily.com/politics/43595
