Azerbaijan still mulling EEU membership: official

PanARMENIAN.Net - Azerbaijan admits the possibility of joining the Eurasian Economic Union (EEU), but needs to analyze the pros and cons of getting involved in the association, the country’s Deputy Minister of Economy and Industry said, according to RIA Novosti.

“We may participate in alliances, which benefit Azerbaijan,” Sevinj Hasanova said.
