Aram Sargsyan: Delay in Armenia's accession to Eurasian Economic Union may destabilize the situation

  • Friday, July 11, 17:00

The public should be aware of all the problems and difficulties in the process of Armenia's integration into the Eurasian Economic Union (EAEU), because the delay in Armenia's accession to the EAEU may destabilize the situation, Aram Sargsyan, Leader of the Democratic Party of Armenia, said at today's Moscow-Yerevan video conference.    

He said that Armenia has chosen the path of Eurasian integration stemming from its national interests, but now the country's accession to the EAEU is being delayed for some reasons, and it is announced at the level of Foreign Ministers, not Presidents. Aram Sargsyan expressed his concern over the attempt to politicize the issue by linking it with the Karabakh problem. 

When asked about the expediency to maintain the Commission for European Integration in the Armenian Parliament following Armenia's accession to the EAEU, Sargsyan replied that Armenia should not be isolated. "There is no need to transform or reform the given Commission. In the meantime, it is necessary to set up a Commission for Eurasian Integration", he said. 

For his part, Deputy Director of the Caucasus Institute Sergey Minasyan said that politicization of Armenia's accession to the EAEU is inevitable. Though the EAEU is an economic union, the decision on Armenia's accession has been taken with due regard for political and geopolitical realities.  

At the same time, he stressed that on the one hand Armenia's accession is delayed and on the other hand the issues related to the customs duties are not tackled. These unresolved problems may make the integration economically inexpedient, he said. Minasyan added that it is other countries, not Armenia, that politicize the issue.
