Armenia will get a €34 million grant from the European Union in 2015, despite the fact that it’s joining the Eurasian Economic Union, Armenian Deputy Foreign Minister Shavarsh Kocharyan said at the budget considerations at the joint sitting of the National Assembly’s Standing Committees on European Integration and Financial-Credit and Budgetary Affairs.
“The European Union remains an important partner of Armenia,” he added.
“In the near future we plan to hold discussions on the trade-economic component of our cooperation with the EU. This will be followed by political consultations between Armenia and the EU with a view of forming a new framework of cooperation,” the Deputy Foreign Minister said.
“The Republic of Armenia is interested in deepening the cooperation with the EU, taking into consideration our commitments in the Eurasian Economic Union to exclude any contradiction between the two,” he said.
