Armenia prepares to sign agreement on partnership with EU in November

YEREVAN. Sept 18 (Interfax) - Armenia will sign a comprehensive and enhanced partnership agreement with the European Union in November, Armenian Foreign Minister Edward Nalbandian said.

"On our part, there are no obstacles to signing. And we will not create any obstacles to the signing of this document," Nalbandian said, responding to questions from participants in the Sixth Armenia-Diaspora All-Armenian Forum held in Yerevan on Monday.

He also said that membership in the Eurasian Economic Union follows from "the strategic economic interests of the republic."

"It is also in our interests to develop relations with all countries to the degree to which these countries or integration associations are willing. There are no contradictions," Nalbandian said.

Armenian President Serzh Sargsyan said earlier that Armenia intends to sign the EU-Armenia Comprehensive and Enhanced Partnership Agreement. "We will sign in the fall. We have no reasons not to sign it," Sargsyan said.
