Armenian PM to attend EAEU, CIS summits in St. Petersburg

Belarus – Dec 25 2023

MINSK, 25 December (BelTA) – Armenian Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan is headed to the Russian Federation on a two-day working visit, Armenpress reported.

The Prime Minister's Office reported that Nikol Pashinyan will take part in a meeting of the Supreme Eurasian Economic Council in St. Petersburg on 25 December and an informal CIS summit on 26 December.

There was a certain intrigue about the Armenian prime minister's participation in the summits, despite the fact that the country is scheduled to take over the chairmanship of the EAEU in 2024. The Armenian leader did not take part in the recent summits of the CIS in Bishkek and the CSTO in Minsk, and the official information about his trip to St. Petersburg was not confirmed until recently.
