YEREVAN, March 30. /ITAR-TASS/. Armenian President Serzh Sargsyan said on Saturday that Armenia had met over 70% of its commitments, mentioned in the “road map” for entering the Customs Union. Other commitments are also being met.
“Today, we have a clear working agenda and a roadmap for Armenia’s accession to the Customs Union that are in the process of being implemented,” the Armenian president told an economic forum, “Armenia-Customs Union: Opportunities and Challenges.”
“Active cooperation with the Eurasian Economic Community and relevant bodies in Russia, Kazakhstan and Belarus have made it possible for us to make substantial progress on this way,” Sargsyan stressed, adding that signing an international legal document and Armenia’s direct participation in international economic processes would be the next step.
“Economic integration substantially expands opportunities for the country’s development. Our decision to join the Customs Union proceeds from realization of this fact,” Sargsyan stressed.
