EU asks Armenia to clarify decision on Customs Union

The European Union said Wednesday that it would seek clarification on Armenia‘s decision to join a Russia-backed customs union, after years of free trade negotiations with the 28-member bloc, according to the Europe Online Magazine.

“We look forward to understanding better from Armenia what their intentions are,” said Peter Stano, the spokesman for EU Commissioner Stefan Fule, who is responsible for neighbourhood policy.

He said the European Commission would ask Yerevan how it planned to “ensure compatibility” with the association and free trade agreement it sought with the EU.

“Once this consultation has been completed, we will draw our conclusions on the way forward,” Stano added.
