Kazakh, Belarusian Parliaments to Vote on Armenia’s Entry to EEU

Kazakhstan's parliament building


YEREVAN (Arka)—Kazakhstan’s lawmakers will vote to ratify the treaty on Armenia’s accession to the Eurasian Economic Union after a meeting in Moscow on Dec. 23, says a Russian government report from a meeting between Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev and Kazakh President Nursultan Nazarbayev.

“There will be a meeting in Moscow and we will ratify Armenia’s accession,” Nazarbayev is quoted as saying by the report. “maybe Kyrgyzstan will be ready by that time.”

“Common customs boards and freedom in movement of people and cargo is a great advantage for our countries,” Nazarbayev said.

On Dec. 10, Armenian President Serzh Sarkisian spoke to his Kazakh counterpart by phone. The two presidents discussed prospects for cooperation between their countries within the Eurasian Economic Union.

On Dec. 4, the Armenian National Assembly ratified the agreement of Armenia’s accession to the Eurasian Economic Union. On Dec. 10, Russia’s Duma ratified it as well.

The Belarusian parliament is set to vote on Armenia’s accession this week, head of the parliament’s committee on international affairs, Nikolay Samoseyko, told RIA Novosti on Monday.

After Kazakh and Belarusian lawmakers ratify the treaty, Armenia will become a full member of the Union.

    It is a forgone conclusion after Mother Russia’s vote last week. It was no accident that the vote was first done in the Duma. It signaled what RasPutin wants. And what RasPutin wants is what RasPutin will get. No Khazakh or Belarus politician can afford to be seen as an obstacle to the Alpha and Omega of the region.
