Russian expert: It is very much important for Armenia to join Eurasian Economic Union within its main borders

It is very much important for Armenia to join Eurasian Economic Union within its main borders, the known Russian analyst, Sergey Markedonov, told ArmInfo correspondent.  

 

"We have to understand that the October meeting of Vladimir Putin with Nursultan Nazarbayev, Serzh Sargsyan and Aleksandr Lukashenko will be extremely complicated, taking into consideration the Kazakh president's special position regarding the Eurasian aspirations of Yerevan. In this context, the forthcoming membership of Armenia in the Eurasian Economic Union should happen without Nagornyy Karabakh, especially taking into account the unwillingness of Yerevan to set a customs point between the territories of Armenia and Nagorny Karabakh. In general, there are numerous  difficulties and intrigues in this process", - Markedonov emphasized.

 

The analyst is confident that only the economic ideas are not enough for Yerevan when making decisions in this sphere, taking into consideration the Karabakh conflict and the shut down border by Ankara. It is easy to account that against the background of worsening of the Russia-West relations, any attempt to defrost the Karabakh conflict may lead to lack of coordination in the actions of the USA, Russia and France. He thinks that the process of the Karabakh conflict settlement may turn into a hostage of a global political crisis around Ukraine.
