Azerbaijani authorities are jealous of Armenia's accession to EEU: Armen Ashotyan
Armenia and Nagorno-Karabakh are a common space: two Armenian states, but a common economic, educational and cultural, as well as a common defense space, because Armenia has repeatedly stated to be the security guarantor of Artsakh. In a conversation with the journalists in the National Assembly, said the Vice-Chairman of the Republican Party of Armenia, the Minister of Education and Science, Armen Ashotyan. "Such an option is unacceptable to us, and I cannot imagine someone living and working in Armenia, and especially someone dealing with politics, can accept such an absurd version, and make it a
subject of discussion", as reports “Armenpress”, said Ashotyan.
Armen Ashotyan pointed out that it is obvious that the Azerbaijani authorities are jealous of Armenia's accession to the Eurasian Economic Union, fully understanding its consequences. "It is also obvious for our domestic critics that if Armenia's joining to the European Union were bad, the Azerbaijani authorities would follow with pleasure the wrong choice of Armenia, which takes to destruction", said the Minister, adding that the Azerbaijani authorities have counted very well all the positive effects for Armenia that can occur after its joining the Eurasian Union, and they do everything to prevent it.
