YEREVAN, September 4. /ARKA/.Sergey Minasyan, the head of a division of the Institute of CIS Countries, commenting today on the rumors going around that Armenian Prime Minister Tigran Sargsyan, who is known for its bent for Europe and repeated objections to the idea of Armenia’s membership in the Customs Union, will be dismissed under pressure from the Russian side, said he didn’t think so.
“Armenia has responded to Russia’s wishes, and Russia, on its side, taking this fact into account, has made good proposals to Armenia,” he said answering ARKA News Agency’s question. “The two presidents met in compromising, not confrontational atmosphere, and I don’t think something like that will happen.”
Armenia’s president Sezrh Sargsyan said Tuesday after talks with Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin in Moscow that Yerevan had decided to join the Customs Union of Russia, Kazakhstan and Belarus, as well as the proposed Eurasian Economic Union strongly promoted by Russian President Vladimir Putin. ---0---
