Official Brussels has re-warned Armenia on impossibility to combine participation in the Customs Union with the agreement on free trade area with the EU, the Rosbat reports.


According to the edition, this was announced by the Chairman of the European Parliament Committee on Foreign Affairs, deputy chairman of the European People's Party Elmar Brok. He noted that the two agreements contradict each other legally.

"The EU cannot sign an agreement for a deep and comprehensive free trade with a country that is a member of the Customs Union, initiated by Russia. Legally, it is impossible. They must make a choice, and that choice should be made not only by Armenia, but also by the others member states of the Eastern Partnership which also want to join the free trade area, proposed by the European Union", the IA Regnum quoted the senior representative of the European Union.

When asked about what would happen if Armenia decides to join the Customs Union, Brok said that "in this case, the relationship between the EU and these countries will be the same as with Russia".
