Armenian President Serzh Sargsyan on April 29 will leave for Minsk to participate in the meeting of the Supreme Eurasian Economic Council, during which, in all likelihood, he will sign an agreement on Armenia's membership to the Customs Union. RA Deputy Minister of Economy, head of the working group on preparations for Armenia's accession to the Customs Union Karine Minasyan conveyed this news to the correspondent of local daily Haykakan Zhamanak.
The core activities as outlined in the roadmap, according to Minasyan, are completed, and if the working group doesn't manage to settle on certain negotiation issues by the meeting date, the presidents themselves will settle those matters.
According to the newspaper, there is currently no final decision on around 900 goods, the customs duties of which are lower in Armenia than as stipulated by the Customs Union. If the parties fail to agree on this matter, those goods imported to Armenia from countries outside the Customs Union might increase in price drastically after Armenia's entry into the Customs Union.
