Armenia is approaching the finish line and I believe that at the
announced time - by July 1 - the country will officially join the
Eurasian Economic Union (EaEU), political scientist Sergey Minasyan
told a press conference in Yerevan.

"If this does not happen and the events develop in the worst possible
way, then Armenia will take part in the work of that organization
from January 1," he added.

Commenting on the recent statement of Kazakh President Nursultan
Nazarbayev, the expert said that the Kazakh leader actually said
nothing about Karabakh, he only spoke about Armenia's borders.

"We must understand that Armenia joined many political and economic
organizations without Karabakh in the past and can do so in the future
since Karabakh is not part of Armenia. It is a political unit with
all its attributes so in the legal respect Armenia could not and
will not join the Eurasian Economic Union together with Karabakh,"
Minasyan concluded.
