YEREVAN, June 24, /ARKA/. Director of Yerevan-based Caucasus Institute Alexander Iskandaryan has questioned today the likelihood of Armenia’s signing a treaty on its accession to the Customs Union of Russia, Belarus and Kazakhstan before July 1.
The deadline was set by the presidents of Russia, Belarus and Kazakhstan at their most recent summit held on May 29 in Astana.
Speaking at a news conference today Iskandaryan said there are some technical problems, including the ones between Customs Union members that need to be resolved but it is unlikely to happen before the July 1 deadline.
He said Armenia’s accession to the Russia-led trade bloc will not have any impact on the stalled Karabakh peace process. -0-
