YEREVAN. - Armenia's opposition Free Democrats Party released a
statement which specifically reads:

"In the current political context, Armenia is obligated to maintain
equal relations with other states, international political,
economic and security systems, which will contribute to our state's
democratization, economic growth, and the raising of its international
standing.

In this case, Armenia's membership in the Eurasian Union could become
an insurmountable obstacle before Armenia's liberal development
and identity.

Greatly underscoring the further necessity to expand friendly relations
with the [Russian Federation] RF, at the same time the Free Democrats
Party is hopeful that these relations will develop under mutually
beneficial conditions for the two states.

At present, Armenia's independent, liberal and democratic development
is a reliable guarantee for the sustainable development of the region.

In this context, we are convinced that Armenia's further political
and economic growth is possible solely in the case of becoming a full
member of the European family."
