Kazimirov: Armenia's accession to EAEU can have no direct impact on the Karabakh peace process

Armenia's accession to the Eurasian Economic Union (EAEU) can have no direct impact on settlement of the Karabakh conflict, Vladimir Kazimirov, the former OSCE MG Co-Chair of Russia, told reporters in Yerevan on 20 June. 

He said that the economic and commercial components in the EAEU weigh upon the political one. In the Karabakh peace process, the economic interests are of secondary importance. Expecting resolution of the Karabakh conflict with accession to the EAEU is the same as "to scratch the left ear with the right hand," Kazimirov said. Nevertheless, in case of desire, one can find some indirect impact, he said.  
Armenia announced an intention to access the EAEU on 29 May in Astana.
