ArmInfo. Armenian Prime Minister Hovik Abrahamyan will participate in the Moscow Summit of the Prime Ministers of the Eurasian Economic Union (EEU) Member States.
The press office of the Armenian Government reports that Hovik Abrahamyan will leave for Moscow on April 12 to attend the meeting of the EEU Intergovernmental Council. During his visit, Abrahamyan will also meet with his Russian counterpart Dmitry Medvedev.
ArmInfo's own sources close to the Government say that it was not easy for the Armenian prime minister to take such a decision because the cancellation of the earlier planned summit in Yerevan at Kazakhstan's initiative and the move of the summit to Moscow placed the Armenian prime minister in a dilemma - whether to stage a walkout in response to the walkout or to accept the invitation and attend the summit in Moscow.
To note, the press office of the Eurasian Economic Commission reported earlier that given the current situation in Armenia, the EEU summit has been moved from Yerevan to Moscow and will be held on April 13.
Earlier the Russian media reported that the summit, which was to take place in Yerevan on April 8, was canceled at the initiative of Kazakhstan. The latter said that Azerbaijan, which is no member of the EEU, may qualify the event in Armenia on the days of escalation of the Karabakh conflict as unilateral support to the Armenian side. In the meantime, Armenian Prime Minister Hovik Abrahamyan said that he saw no serious reasons to move the summit from Yerevan to Moscow.
It was previously reported that the agenda of the meeting of the Eurasian Intergovernmental Council would include priority tasks related to Eurasian economic integration. It not clear yet whether the agenda will be updated.
