Will Armenia  sign an agreement with the European Union?

Yerevan / 26.05.17 / Turan: The European Union is full of hopes that this time Armenia will sign a new comprehensive and expanded partnership agreement. David McAllister, head of the Foreign Affairs Committee of the European Parliament, said this at a press conference in Yerevan. Answering the question of Radio Liberty, he said that he came to this conviction after discussions with Armenian President Serzh Sargsyan.

"Yes, Armenia is a member of the Eurasian Economic Union, we know what happened in 2013. But now President Sargsyan is ready to sign an ambitious agreement with the European Union, which is important for us, for the European Union," McAllister said.

It should be reminded that the European Union negotiated with Armenia about the Association Agreement. However, in September 2013, after almost 3.5 years of negotiations, unexpectedly, Serzh Sargsyan stated that Armenia prefers to join the Eurasian Economic Union headed by Russia.

At the same time, Armenian politicians admitted that in case of refusal from the union with Russia, Moscow threatened Yerevan with the loss of Karabakh.-02D-
