EAEU membership row between Armenia's RPA and Yelk continues

PanARMENIAN.Net - A spokesperson for the ruling Republican Party of Armenia, Eduard Sharmazanov has described talks on leaving the Eurasian Economic Union as "false agenda," RFE/RL Armenian Service reports.

Edmon Marukyan from the opposition Yelk bloc urged a month earlier the necessity to leave the Union.

Speaking to reporters after an RPA meeting on Thursday, August 17, Sharmazanov said that the Yelk bloc has offered no coordinated position on the issue.

Yelk lawmaker Lena Nazaryan said, however, that the bloc does have a coordinated position, which is expressed in their program unveiled ahead of elections to the National Assembly.

Nazaryan added that there might be different opinions concerning the right time for submitting a proposal to leave the EAEU.
