Russian government to propose to president to sign agreement on Armenia’s accession to Eurasian Economic Union
YEREVAN, August 7. /ARKA/. Submission of a proposal to the president on signing the agreement about Armenia’s accession to the Eurasian Economic Union is included in the agenda of Russian cabinet meeting on Thursday, says the official website of the Russian government.
It is a basic document defining agreements between the Russian Federation, Belarus and Kazakhstan on Armenia’s accession, says the report.
On May 29, Russia, Belarus and Kazakhstan signed an agreement about the Eurasian Economic Union to come into force on January 1, 2015. During the meeting Armenia’s president Serzh Sargsyan said Yerevan will join the union by mid June, but the respective documents have not been signed yet.
Russia’s president Vladimir Putin said on July 1 at his meeting with diplomats that Armenia would become a full-fledged member of the EEU very soon. Earlier, mass media referred to Kazakhstan foreign minister Yerlan Idrisov as saying the agreement with Armenia will be, most probably, signed in October. –0--
