Swiss Ambassador to Armenia Lukas Gasser: Switzerland will try to contribute to a peaceful settlement of the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict without questioning the established formats such as the OSCE Minsk process
Armenia is ready to initial the Association Agreement with the European Union during the Eastern Partnership Summit in Vilnius, Armenian President Serzh Sargsyan said at PACE on Wednesday.
"From the very first days of the negotiations we made it clear that we were not going to deepen our cooperation at the expense of our relations with partners. We hoped that the Association Agreement would complement the other directions and we still hope that we will be able to sign it without the Deep and Comprehensive Free Trade Area Agreement," Sargsyan said.
He said that most of the Armenians support the decision to sign the Association Agreement and to join the Customs Union. "Our decisions come from the interests and wishes of our people. So, I don't think that we need a referendum," Sargsyan said.
