Swedish FM: Russia forced Armenia to give up its plans to sign association agreement with EU

Russia
forced Armenia to give up its plans to sign an association agreement with the
European Union, Swedish Foreign Minister Carl Bildt said in Washington.


 


He said that Georgia, Moldova and Ukraine are actively
moving towards Europe, while Armenia has opted for the Customs Union. But the
problem is that it had no alternative and was simply forced by Russia to do it.


 



Bildt also doubts that
authoritarian Azerbaijan is sincere in its wish to take part in the EU Eastern
Partnership program. He said that Azerbaijan is based on oil and authoritarian
rule, which is a problem for Europe.
