http://arka.am-YEREVAN, February 12. /ARKA/. The Republic of Armenia is ready to be as close to the European Union as the EU deems it possible, Armenian Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan said in a last week interview with the British newspaper The Daily Telegraph, when asked whether the country wants to move towards the EU and whether it is reasonable.
” It is obvious that the relations between Armenia and the European Union are deepening and it is obvious that the relations between Armenia and the European Union are deepening, including under the conditions and because of the implementation of the “Comprehensive and Enhanced Partnership Agreement”. But, of course, on the other hand, it is obvious that the relations between Armenia and the European Union are getting closer because, according to the international community, we have visible successes in implementing democratic reforms.,” he said.
According to Pashinyan, this nuance is very important for understanding the situation and many events that are taking place in Armenia.
“We are not turning away from anyone. We are implementing the messages received from our people. And that message is primarily about democratic reforms. And democracy, democratic reforms, the development of a democratic society are not agendas caused by certain circumstances. I have stated many times that this is a strategy for us, and in my speech in the European Parliament I stated that we will continue the implementation of these strategies, we will continue these reforms. And I said that the Republic of Armenia is ready to be as close to the European Union as the European Union deems it possible.,” the prime minister said.
