YEREVAN. – Armenia’s Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan made a post on his Facebook page yesterday, according to which it can be assumed that a decision was made to close the border [with Iran]. Davit Ananyan, Chairman of the State Revenue Committee, said this today at the National Assembly Standing Committee on Regional and Eurasian Integration debate on the issue of ratification of the agreement on the exchange of information on goods transported through the customs border of the Eurasian Economic Union and the means of transport carrying out international transportation.
In his opinion, such a decision will most likely be made today. "A relevant committee was set up back in late January this year," Ananyan said. “It came to that decision as a result of its work. The decision to close the border for two weeks will be made today; this, naturally, will have consequences in terms of customs services, too."
Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan has announced on Facebook that Armenia will close its land border and suspend its air communication for two weeks with Iran because of the coronavirus outbreak in that country.
