Armenia plans to continue cooperation with European structures and is not going to give up its participation in the Customs Union. Armenian Prime Minister Tigran Sargsyan stated in Brussels that Armenia, which is under a blockade from an “unfriendly neighbor” (Azerbaijan), cannot afford revising its strategic partnership with the Russian Federation and thus risk the security of the state because Armenia’s safety system is dependent on Russia. The Armenian PM thinks that to deepen relations with the EU on the one hand and joining the Customs Union on the other, is not excluded, and Armenia could benefit from both these directions.
