Armenian Presidnet: Not everybody is glad that Armenia is joining the Customs Union

 The Customs Union is not one country and I agree with the opinion that not everybody is glad that Armenia is joining it, Armenian President Serzh Sargsyan said while closing Baze 2014 Youth Camp on Saturday.

"Any country's membership to any union implies certain problems for the other members. But on the other hand, I can't say that the Customs Union members do not want Armenia to join them. Otherwise, they would prevent us from doing it. Those saying that we are being forced to join the Customs Union are not right. If a certain part of our society blames us for being in too much haste to join the Union, this does not mean that somebody is forcing us to do it. This is a normal process. We are entering a crucial stage of our development and we will face lots of changes. It is hard to have a consensus on such an issue. I have no problems with either those criticizing us or those supporting our initiative. Time will show who was right," Sargsyan said
