On Wednesday, Armenian President Serzh Sargsyan said that his country would join the Customs Union of the Eurasian Economic Community (TS EvrAsES) this year. He said in his televised New Year speech, “I’m sure that we’d become a full member of the Customs Union this year. It’d create a new environment for Armenia, in which it’d have better protection and be more competitive”. In September, Armenia decided to join the TS EvrAsES. It signed a preliminary agreement towards this on 24 December. In early December, Russia and Armenia signed an intergovernmental agreement to cancel export duties on natural gas, oil products, and rough diamonds shipped to the South Caucasus nation.
