Armenia’s decision to change its political vector from the West to Russia has raised Armenia’s rating from the military, political and economic viewpoints, Director of the Noravank Center Gagik Harutyunyan told a press conference today. He believes that even if Armenia signs no document in Vilnius, it will not harm the Armenia-EU relations.
“Even experts declare that Armenia has made a correct choice form the point of view of security. Armenia should try to synthesize the European and Eurasian experience. Europeans are doing the same by seeking avenues for cooperation with the Eurasian Union,” he said.
Political scientist Alexander Markarov has no great expectations from the Vilnius summit. He’s hopeful, however, that the Vilnius meeting will determine the foreign policy path. According to him, it’s more than clear that the Association Agreement is not going to be signed.
