Expert: If Baku wants to join Eurasian Economic Union, Moscow may initiate the process of disposal of Karabakh from Armenia

  • Tuesday, June 17, 15:49

Armenia should delay its joining the Eurasian Economic Union and analyze in details possible consequences of its membership in this structure, Director of the Centre for Globalization and Regional Cooperation, Stepan Grigoryan, said at today's press-conference.

He said that at present there are three obvious threats for the country when joining Eurasian Economic Union. In particular, he emphasized the Karabakh survey, which should be taken into consideration when joining any integration structure. "If we join the EAEU, we have to fix that Karabakh conflict is being resolved within the frames of the OSCE Minsk Group, and if Armenia does not join Eurasian Economic Union, this will not affect Karabakh", he said. The expert thinks that Russia is interested in Azerbaijan's joining Eurasian Economic Union, and if Baku agrees to join the structure, it will do that only with a condition that the Karabakh conflict will be resolved in favor of Azerbaijan. In that case, Moscow will start the process of disposal of Karabakh from Armenia, he said. 

The expert said that the second threat is suppression of the rights and freedoms and worsening of the democratic situation. He said in particular, that members of the EAEU - Russia, Kazakhstan and Belarus are not the countries with high level of democracy. So, if Armenia joins this structure, it may also lose certain progress in this direction. And the third threat are the economic problems, inflation, in particular, that will happen after Armenia's joining EAEU.
