It is important that the Vilnius Summit delivers a message that the EU will continue to strengthen its relations with partner countries. Such statement was made by Alexander Arzumanyan at the TV debate entitled ‘Vilnius Summit: Political Defeat or New Opportunity for Armenia?’

Davit Shahnazaryan, head of ‘Agreement’ center, believes that Armenia will sign a non-binding declaration. ‘Armenia will do whatever Russia is willing to allow’ adding ‘If Armenia joined the Customs Union, it would be another Russian military basement.’

The speakers of the debate included Alexander Arzumanyan, MP, “Heritage” Faction of National Assembly; Hovhannes Sahakyan, secretary, “Republican Party of Armenia” Faction of National Assembly; Khosrov Harutyunyan, MP, “Republican Party of Armenia” Faction of National Assembly; Davit Shahnazaryan, head, ‘Agreement’ center; Alexander Iskandaryan, director, the Caucasus Institute, political scientist; andManvel Sargsyan, director, Armenian Centre for National and International Studies, political analyst.

However, Alexander Iskandaryan, political expert, believes that whoever there could have been instead of President Serge Sargsyan, he would make the same decision in Moscow on September 3.

Manvel Sargsyan, director of Armenian Centre for National and International Studies, political analyst believes the President's statement that Russia will not force Armenia to enter the union.

Hovhannes Sahakyan, member of the NA Republican Faction, noted that Armenia chose Russia 22 years ago, when preferring security: He mentioned that Armenia is ready to continue the European integration process as long as it does not conflict with the CU joining process.

 Khosrov Harutyunyan noted that Armenia will strengthen relations with the European Union only to such an extent as not to hinder Armenia’s joining the Customs Union.
