Armenia, EU to sign new deal this fall – President

Armenia and EU will sign a Comprehensive and Enhanced Partnership Agreement this fall, Armenian President Serzh Sargsyan said at a Q&A with participants of Baze youth gathering.

“Yes, we are going to sign the agreement this fall. I’m stating this with confidence as the document has already been initialed,” the President said, assuring that “we have no reason not to sign it.”

The President also referred to Armenia’s decision to join the Eurasian Economic Union, which he described as “attempts by media to present it as a decision made overnight.”

“We were negotiating with both the Eurasian Economic Union and the European Union, because both had said at the beginning the two would not contradict each other. However, we could do nothing after the EU declares it’s incompatible,” Serzh Sargsyan stated.
