Hi, friends. Which of these words is more suitable for this occasion? Is there a better alternative to convey the intended meaning?
Here is the sentence: "The interlocutors expressed the hope that the parliamentary meetings in Yerevan will become a crucial stop on the way to enhancing Armenia-EU relations."

    Hi, Mher. I understand "a crucial stop", but I think I'd just say that these meetings will be crucial to enhancing Armenia-EU relations. I'm not sure there's any advantage in calling the meetings "a stop."

    I liked "crucial to." You are right, owlman5, the simpler the better.
