YEREVAN, August 22, /ITAR-TASS/. Armenia’s forthcoming membership of the Eurasian Economic Union is unlikely to affect its current relations with Georgia.
“Armenia and Georgia can benefit from membership of different integration bodies,” Armenian Prime Minister Ovik Abramyan said at talks with his Georgian counterpart Irakly Garibashvili on Thursday.
“Armenia is making steps to join the Eurasian Economic Union. At the same time, our country continues active cooperation with the European Union with an aim to give new impetus to reforms in various spheres,” Abramyan went on to say.
Georgian Prime Minister Irakly Garibashvili, in turn, expressed the hope that Armenia and Georgia would be able to preserve economic, political and cultural cooperation despite the fact that they would be members of different integration bodies.
“That would be a good example for the world community,” Garibashvili stressed.
