PARLIAMENT SPEAKER: ARMENIA'S FUTURE IS EU AND NATO

Yerevan, May 2. ArmInfo. Armenia's future is the EU and NATO, says
the speaker of the Armenian parliament Artur Bagdassaryan.

But this does not mean that tomorrow Armenia will officially say it
is joining these organizations, especially as the foreign policy of
the country is determined by the president. This is his personal view
as a politician and the leader of the Country of Law ruling coalition
party. Baghdassaryan says that he knows about the president's position
that NATO membership is not on Armenia's foreign political agenda. But
still he is sure that Armenia's future is the EU and NATO rather
than Russia-Belarus. This will be a long process, says Baghdassaryan
noting that Armenia has been actively cooperating with NATO for many
years already. But by developing its relations with NATO and the EU
Armenia should not complicate its relations with Russia.
