YEREVAN, March 02, /ITAR-TASS/. Armenia’s decision to join the Customs Union (CU) comes from the country’s economic and strategic interests, the republic’s Foreign Minister Edvard Nalbandyan said in his address on the occasion of the country’s Day of Diplomat, which Armenia celebrates on Sunday. On that day in 1992, the country joined the United Nations Organisation.
“Year 2013 is outstanding for the Republic of Armenia’s decision to join the CU, which originates from the economic and strategic interests of the republic,” the foreign minister said.
“Armenia has been undertaking every effort to improve the strategic relations with Russia, develop the friendly relations with the US, with European, Asian countries, to expand the geography of mutual relations,” the foreign minister said.
