RPA doesn’t plan cooperation with Yeni Azerbaijan – MP

PanARMENIAN.Net - The chair of standing parliamentary committee on foreign relations, RPA member Artak Zakaryan commented on the protocol on cooperation singed between representatives from United Russia, Republican Party of Armenia (RPA), Kazakhstan’s Nur Otan and Yeni Azerbaijan (New Azerbaijan) political parties at “Eurasian integration in the 21st century” forum in St. Petersburg.

As Mr. Zakaryan told PanARMENIAN.Net “the document stressed the parties’ readiness to continue discussion of European integration prospects.”

The MP further urged against presenting the issue as an intergovernmental one.

“Yeni Azerbaijan has only recently joined the current format, with no protocols previously signed with the party. We’ve signed a number of agreements, with Azerbaijan as one of the undersigned. However, our cooperation with Baku is ruled out,” the MP said.
