Expert: Nothing will change in its relations with Karabakh after Armenia's joining the Customs Union or Eurasian Economic Union

 The noise around President of Kazakhstan Nursultan Nazarbayev's statement about the borders of Armenia when joining the Eurasian Economic Union is groundless, Alexander Iskandaryan, director of Caucasus Institute, said at today's press-conference. 


He said that the statement by Kazakhstan's president Nursultan Nazarbayev should be perceived not in the context of Karabakh, but Kazakhstan's relationship, for example with Russia and Azerbaijan. In fact, Nazarbayev did not mention Karabakh, urging Armenia to join Eurasian Economic Union with internationally recognized borders, he added.


"Did anyone think that Armenia will join with other borders or will join with any other territories?  Of course, no. Did anyone think that Karabakh will also join the process of EU association when the talks with EU were underway?" he asked.  The analyst said  the NKR has not filed an application for joining Customs Union and the Eurasian Economic Union, because they can not do it, and Armenia will join the Union as Armenia. "Actually, there is an economically common space between Armenia and Karabakh, and this will remain as it used to be," Iskandaryan said. 


President of Kazakhstan Nursultan Nazarbayev, said on 29 May in Astana Azerbaijan claims that Armenia can join the Eurasian Economic Union (EAU) within the same borders it joined the World Trade Organization (WTO).  "We have received the Azerbaijani president's letter saying that Armenia joined WTO with a reservation that the provisions must apply to the territory of Armenia within its international borders recognized by the UN. It is an issue for discussion," the Kazakh president said.
