Armenia expected to join EEU by 2015

Armenian Prime Minister Hovik Abrahamyan announced this week that Armenia has fully met its obligations for accession to the Eurasian Economic Union, which is expected sometime next year.

Reports from earlier this month from an aEEU meeting in Minsk revealed that Kazakhstani Foreign Minister Yerlan Idrisov said the agreement for Armenia to join the EEU would probably be signed in October, ARKA reports.

Armenian President Serzh Sargsyan said in late May at the extended EEU Supreme Council meeting in Astana that the country intended to join the EEU by mid-June but that the required documents had yet to be signed.

Russian President Vladimir Putin said at a July 1 meeting with Russian diplomats that Armenia will become a full-fledged EEU member very soon, according to ARKA.
