ARMENIA CANNOT BECOME CUSTOMS UNION MEMBER

Armenia’s PM Tigran Sarkisian cannot join the Belarus-Kazakh-Russia
customs union unless Georgia joins as well. Therefore Armenia will
try to integrate with the European Union. Realistically Georgia will
not join to this union and therefore, as Armenia has no land border
to any of those countries, it will be technically impossible for
Armenia to join the union. Tigran Sarkisian mentioned that there is
no point in joining a customs union with a country with which you do
not share a land border. The Armenian PM expressed his confidence
that his country may become the member of a free trade relations
agreement with EU countries.
