Aram Sargsyan: I have never been a supporter of the EAEU, but I  welcome the summit in Yerevan

Aram Sargsyan: I have never been a supporter of the EAEU, but I  welcome the summit in Yerevan

ArmInfo.. Head of the Republic party, former Prime Minister of  Armenia Aram Sargsyan expressed a similar opinion to ArmInfo.

On October 1, a meeting of the Supreme Eurasian Economic Council was  held in Yerevan with the participation of the leaders of 5 EAEU  member states, as well as invited guests: Iranian President Hassan  Rouhani, Singaporean Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong and Moldovan  President Igor Dodon. Within the framework of the Yerevan summit,  negotiations between the presidents of Iran and Russia, as well as  negotiations between the Armenian Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan and  Russian President Vladimir Putin, took place. "I very highly and  positively assess the EAEU Yerevan meeting and its results. Having  held the EAEU summit in Yerevan, Armenia has shown its own  significance, presented itself as a factor in international  relations, the international agenda. In this light, it is very  important that the meeting of the 

Presidents of Iran and Russia Hassan Rouhani and Vladimir Putin was  organized precisely in Armenia and on the initiative of Armenia. Both  Rouhani and Putin did not want to take this initiative, but clearly  wanted to meet. And the mere fact that Prime Minister Pashinyan,  already said yelling about the role of Armenia as a bridge between  north and south, " the politician stressed.

Commenting on the prospects of the EAEU, in particular, the  possibility of expanding the organization beyond the post-Soviet  space, in the context of the participation of the leaders of the  Islamic Republic of Iran and Singapore in the Yerevan summit, the  former prime minister praised them as not high. According to him,  declaring his intentions to expand the EAEU in any direction, in  reality, the President of the Russian Federation is only interested  in strengthening Moscow's influence in the post-Soviet space.

According to him, the event in Yerevan was organized at the proper  level, and the Armenian leadership, unlike its predecessors, behaved  with great dignity. In Sargsyan's opinion, this is evidenced even by  the appearance of Putin at the door of the presidential palace in  Yerevan in splendid isolation. While the remaining heads of state,  including the head of Armenia, were waiting for him inside the  building.

The Eurasian Economic Union was founded on January 1, 2015. Members  of the organization are Armenia, Belarus, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan and  Russia. Currently, Uzbekistan is considering the possibility of  membership in the EAEU. The total market of the EAEU is 170 million  people.
