EU assistance no reason to meddle in Armenia’s affairs: RPA lawmaker

PanARMENIAN.Net - The European Union’s assistance to Armenia doesn’t mean the bloc can meddle in the country’s domestic issues, lawmaker from the ruling Republican Party Vahram Baghdasaryan said Wednesday, June 20.

EU ambassador to Armenia Piotr Switalski said last week that elections to the parliament were not perfect, and vote-buying and other electoral fraud cases were registered during the April 2 vote. Also, he said Tuesday the EU has provided Armenia with financial aid worth some $7 million, which, according to him, followed the Armenian authorities’ request.

“Providing assistance doesn’t mean they can cash in on that assistance, keep interfering in domestic issues and problems,” Panorama.am cited Baghdasaryan as saying.
