Armenia has to join neither the European Union nor the Customs Union

Armenia has to join no "pyramid" unions, either the European Union nor the Customs Union, an expert Harutyun Mesropyan, told journalists today.

"In the context of management, if you join any similar union, you lose a part of sovereignty. You are promised any shady prospects, and you don't know what will happen, as you do not have a strong development concept, a strong diplomatic corps. Moreover, you are not a factor to be taken into consideration", - Mesropyan said when replying to ArmInfo correspondent's question. 

Asked to compare the development prospects of Armenia and Georgia in the context of different integration vectors of the two states, the expert replied that the comparison is not in favor of Georgia, as the latter has already lost territories. "Georgia has serious losses in the person of South Ossetia and Abkhazia. Moreover, Georgia has gained a headache because of the growth of the Turkish presence in business and other sectors. Our losses are - the migration and the fact that the liberated territories are not populated. So, we should not look at either the South or the North, but at ourselves and enhance our state", - Mesropyan said.
