Once Armenia joins the Eurasian Economic Union and Ukraine signs the association agreement with the European Union, the countries may face certain trade-related problems, Ambassador of Ukraine to Armenia Ivan Kuhta told journalists on Wednesday.
He said that Armenia and Ukraine have a free trade agreement and both are part of the CIS free trade area, so, they will need certain changes if the abovementioned scenario comes true. "I think this problem can be solved as both Yerevan and Kyiv are interested in deepening their economic ties," Kuhta said.
He said that the singing of the economic section of the Association Agreement will be a prelude to Ukraine's accession to the European Union.
"Ukraine has already made its choice and there is no alternative to it," Kuhta said.
