During a press conference on January 16 Armenia’s FM Eduard Nalbandian stated that the topic of Armenia’s position regarding the Eurasian Union has not so far become a subject for discussion. According to him Armenia must finally decide its stance towards the Union. Russia is encouraging Armenia to join the Eurasian Union promising further benefits for the country. The position of Armenians concerning entry to the union is mostly positive. Russia and Armenia are already strategic partners. There are more than 2.5 million ethnic Armenians living and working in Russia. All of them have relatives back in Armenia. These facts could play a positive role in Armenia’s decision to join the Eurasian Union.
