While the leaders of the Czech Republic, Hungary, Poland and Slovakia are used to convening under the banner of the Visegrad group, further east a new alliance is forming that aims to draw the same influence as its Central European forebear.

Meeting at the joint Euronest Assembly at the European Parliament, the Eastern Partnership brings together representatives from member states – each with an equal number of MEP’s – who are tasked with sharing and debating ideas before taking the best ones back home to implement.

With Belarus currently suspended from the partnership, this short video from EuAroParITV discusses some of the other issues facing the remaining member states of Armenia, Azerbaijan, Georgia Moldova and Ukraine.
