"We are currently negotiating with the EU on a document that we will sign,” said Sargsyan.
He said development of relations with the EU is a major goal of Armenia. He said also during the talks with EU it was clearly stated that Armenia’s relations with EU should not develop at the expense of its relations with its allies.
