Armenia has repeatedly said and remains of the same opinion: we are ready to develop ties with the EU in all possible directions.

Armenian FM Edward Nalbandian stated the aforementioned at a press-conference today.

“Of course, considering our obligations towards other integration institutions,” the FM added.

Responding to the question on whether the EEU membership doesn’t hinder developing relations with other countries, the FM said that this opinion doesn’t reflect the reality. “To pessimists I’ll say that 2015 was a vivid year in terms of development of ties with non-EEU member states,” the Minister said. In this context, he mentioned the examples of developing relations with China, U.S. and Iran.
