Becoming an Unreliable Partner

Hrant Kostanyan, an associate fellow at the Centre for European Policy Studies, speaks about the consequences of the latest decision by Armenia’s president to join the Russian-led Joint Customs Union, in the context of the four-year long negotiation process to accede to an Association Agreement with the European Union. Kostanyan underlines the cost of no public discussions or transparent decisions, both with political and strategic partners, and to serve the best interests of citizens.
