/PanARMENIAN.Net/ Chair of the Armenian NA Artur Baghdassaryan during
today's session of the Parliament said that speaking of prospects of
Armenia's accession to the EU and NATO, he meant the long-term outlook.

Noting that matters of EU and NATO accession are not a priority of
Armenia's foreign policy today, Mr Baghdassaryan added he sees the
future of Armenia in the large European family, which "does not run
counter to the Armenian-Russian cooperation." We remind that earlier
A. Baghdassaryan stated in an interview with a German newspaper that
he sees the future of Armenia in the EU and NATO, for which he war
criticized by Armenian President Robert Kocharian.
