The European Union expects Yerevan to explain Armenia's decision to join the Russia-led Customs Union, Maja Kocijancic, spokeswoman for High Representative of the Union for Foreign Affairs & Security Policy Catherine Ashton, said.
According to RIA Novosti, Maja Kocijancic said the EU is waiting for Armenia's clarifications to assess the consequences of the decision.
To recall, on September 3, Armenian President Serzh Sargsyan confirmed Armenia's intention to join the Customs Union and the process of the formation of the Eurasian Union. Vladimir Putin supported Sargsyan's decision and promised to contribute to Yerevan's accession to the Customs Union in every possible way.
The Customs Union has been created within the Eurasian economic space for trade and economic integration of Belarus, Kazakhstan and Russia on the initiative of Russian President Vladimir Putin.
