Monday, 27 February 2017, Brussels: the European Union and the Republic of Armenia finalised a new agreement seeking to deepen political and economic ties between the two entities.

The new agreement comes more than a year after Armenia’s controversial accession to a Russian-led trade bloc. President Serzh Sarkisian unexpectedly signed an agreement back in September 2013 to make Armenia part of the Russian-led Eurasian Economic Union (EEU), in a move that has been widely credited to strong Russian pressure.

The EU-Armenia agreement is likely to be signed in May 2017. Hitherto EU relations with Armenia are governed by the EU -Armenia Partnership and Cooperation Agreement signed in 1996, and which entered into force in 1999.
