The events on the Russian-Ukrainian track contain both risks and opportunities for Armenia, the situation is not static. This was stated by Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan, speaking today, March 14, at a press conference in Yerevan.
According to him, on the one hand, Armenia’s trade with other EAEU countries reached colossal volumes last year. This is an absolute opportunity for the Armenian economy. But, on the other hand, there is concern from the West about whether Armenia is trying to circumvent anti-Russian sanctions, which is a certain discomfort for the republic.
“Obviously, the EAEU is an opportunity for dynamic economic growth for Armenia. But it is equally obvious that if Armenia falls under (secondary) sanctions, then these opportunities will collapse.” Pashinyan noted.
At the same time, the head of government stressed that Armenia is not going to leave any organization. The authorities of the Transcaucasian Republic will do everything to ensure that it continues to be the most responsible member of the international community, a reliable partner for other countries.
As reported EADailyspeaking on March 2 in Berlin at a joint meeting with the German Chancellor Olaf Scholz press conference, Prime Minister Nikol Pashiinyan, in response to a question about the alleged circumvention of restrictive measures against Russia “through Armenia”, said that “these are just rumors.”
