The head of the Armenian Cabinet noted that Armenia considers it important to form a collective system for ensuring food security in the Eurasian Economic Union.

I consider it obvious that there is a need to consolidate the efforts of the EAEU countries in this direction," the head of the Armenian Cabinet said.
Pashinyan also pointed to the importance of forming a common gas market. Armenia, in his words, is ready for a constructive dialogue on this issue. "The timely functioning of the common gas market of the EAEU in the long term will contribute to the formation of favorable and mutually beneficial terms of trade, will ensure an increase in energy security and competitiveness of the member states of the Union in the international market. In this context, the Armenian side is ready for a constructive dialogue in order to reach consensus on outstanding issues as soon as possible ", he noted.
The head of the Armenian Cabinet also touched upon the implementation of the free trade agreement between Iran and the EAEU, which is a priority for Armenia. Pashinyan stressed that given the high dynamics of the development of cooperation with Iran, the entry into force of the Free Trade Agreement and its subsequent implementation can serve as a good basis in the context of a real expansion of trade cooperation with third countries. "The continuation of work on such priority and promising negotiation areas as India and Egypt, as well as the development of a comprehensive dialogue on the economic agenda and the deepening of trade and economic cooperation with the United Arab Emirates and Indonesia will give an additional impetus to the process of integrating the Union into the world economy," Nikol Pashinyan stressed.
