YEREVAN, January 1 (RIA Novosti) - Armenian President Serzh Sargsyan
said on Wednesday that his country would complete all procedures to
join the Russian-led Customs Union this year.

"I'm sure that this year we will become a full-fledged member of the
Customs Union. Armenia will create a new environment, in which it will
be better protected and more competitive, Sargsyan said in his
televised New Year speech.

Armenia decided in September to join the Moscow-led Customs Union of
Russia, Belarus and Kazakhstan. A roadmap on Yerevan's admission was
signed on December 24.

In early December, Russia and Armenia signed an intergovernmental
agreement to cancel export duties for supplies of natural gas, oil
products and rough diamonds to the South Caucasus nation.
