YEREVAN, May 20. /TASS/. Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev has arrived in Yerevan, the capital of Armenia where he will attend a regular session of the Inter-Governmental Council of the Eurasian Economic Union (EAEU), which unites Armenia, Belarus, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, and Russia.
The prime ministers of the five countries are expected to consider the concept of a possible common market of crude oil and oil products, Tigran Sargsyan, the Chairman of the Board of the Eurasian Economic Commission said earlier.
On the whole, the Armenian government said a broad spectrum of integrational collaboration issues would the raised at the session of the Inter-Governmental Council.
This conference of prime ministers of the five member-states of the EAEU is the fifth one since the economic union began to function in January 2015.
The first session in 2016 was to take place in Yerevan on April 7-8 but the organizers had to put it off in the wake of a sharp deterioration of long-smoldering tensions in the mostly Armenian-populated Nagorno-Karabakh enclave region in neighboring Azerbaijan.
Minister at Large David Arutyunian, the chief of the Armenian government’s staff, said then the causes of the postponement were purely technical.
