Armenia can freely withdraw from the Union, says Ambassador Volynkin

Armenia can freely withdraw from the Union, says Ambassador Volynkin

Russia and Armenia are friends, and this friendship must be whole-heartedly, rather than against anybody, Russia’s Ambassador to Armenia Ivan Volynkin said asked whether the Armenian-Chinese military-technical cooperation can affect the Armenian-Russian allied relations.

“Russia and Armenia are friends, and this friendship must be heartily, rather than against anybody. Friendship against anybody is not a friendship”, the Ambassador said, adding that the Armenian-Chinese military-technical partnership is Armenia’s decision: Armenia decides with whom to cooperate, and no one in Russia criticizes this.

Commenting on Armenia’s membership to the Eurasian Economic Union, the Ambassador said: “Armenia can freely withdraw from the Union, however, I think that majority of the country’s population will be against since they see the obvious advantages of being in that Union”.
