EEU-Iran Talks on Free Trade

EEU-Iran Talks on Free Trade EEU-Iran Talks on Free Trade

The Eurasian Economic Union (EEU) has begun discussion on having a privileged trade agreement with Iran at the initiation of Armenia, the Armenian deputy minister of foreign affairs said. “When we felt that the sanctions against Iran might be cancelled, we immediately initiated this process,” Shavarsh Kocharyan said as reported by Armen Press. “Armenia formed a corresponding working group and the works were implemented.” Kocharyan says it is no coincidence that one of the sessions of the working group was held in Iran, and the next in Yerevan. “From this point of view, we as initiators, as a member country of the EEU which has a border with Iran, are really interested in cooperation,” he added. According to him, Iran will hold separate talks with  member states over the agreement.
