YEREVAN. – The Haykakan Zhamanak daily’s reporter asked US Ambassador
John Heffern why he is concerned that the French well-known Carrefour
hypermarket chain might not open in Armenia, the daily reports.
“I believe Carrefour will open in Armenia. I am not involved in this
matter. I have learned that it will open in Armenia at the year’s end.
Ask the French ambassador about it,’ Ambassador Heffern said.
To our reporter’s query what consequences will Armenia’s membership in
EurAsEC [i.e., Eurasian Economic Community] have on the relations
between our country and the West, the US ambassador responded:
`Armenia works well with the EU; we support this work. Armenia has to
make its own decisions. It must be able to balance these relations,”
Haykakan Zhamanak quotes.
