Sharmazanov replies to Brussels lawmaker on Customs Union ‘warning=?UTF-8?B?4oCZ?=

A senior member of President Serzh Sargsyan’s ruling Republican Party (RPA) has responded to a warning of a European parliamentarian that membership in the Russia-initiated Customs Union would be incompatible with Armenia’s aspirations for association with the European Union.

Deputy parliament speaker Eduard Sharmazanov, who is also a spokesman for the RPA, has reiterated Armenia’s position of being interested in cooperation with both the European Union and the emerging Eurasian Union (the Customs Union of Russia, Belarus and Kazakhstan being part of this post-Soviet reintegration effort).

Talking to News.am, Sharmazanov said that the leadership of Armenia does not support the principle “either, or”, rather it espouses the principles of “and/and”.
