Stepanakert rules out customs control between Armenia and Karabakh

Stepanakert rules out customs control between Armenia and Karabakh

PanARMENIAN.Net - The Nagorno Karabakh Republic Prime Minister discussed a number of domestic and foreign policy issues with the students and professors of Artsakh State University.

According to the NKR government’s press service, Araik Harutyunyan ruled out establishment of a customs check point between Armenia and Karabakh following the former’s possible accession to the Eurasian Union.

“Some people confuse control points, regulating the cargo and passenger inflow, with customs checkpoints. Also, establishment of customs checkpoint, necessitating border control by defense guards is impossible, since isn’t technically feasible to maintain control over the scores of roadways connecting Karabakh with Armenia,” the official said.

At the May 29 meeting of the Supreme Eurasian Economic Council, Kazakh President Nursultan Nazarbayev cited a letter by Azeri President Ilham Aliyev, saying that Armenia should be admitted to the Eurasian Union only within its United Nations-recognized borders, i.e. without the Nagorno Karabakh Republic.

Armenia’s accession to Russian international unions is constantly getting delayed over differences on customs border between Armenia and Karabakh. It’s been planned for Armenia to join the Eurasian Economic Union on January 2, 2015.
