Armenia’s Parliament refuses to create commission on withdrawal from EEU
Armenia’s National Assembly rejected the opposition Yelk alliance’s proposal for the creation of the ad hoc commission to study Armenia’s withdrawal from the Eurasian Economic Union (EEU).
Ten deputies voted in favor of creating the commission, 79 opposed it.
Representatives of the pro-Western bloc proposed earlier the creation of the ad hoc commission after the pro-government majority in the National Assembly objected to its draft parliamentary declaration saying that the Armenian authorities must embark on a “process” of invalidating their accession treaty with the EEU.
Vice-Speaker of Armenia's Parliament Eduard Sharmazanov earlier said that the government opposes the country's withdrawal from the EEU.
