Armenia's cooperation with the United States (US) and the European Union (EU) is not directed against the Eurasian Economic Union (EAEU), Armenian Deputy Prime Minister Mher Grigoryan told RIA Novosti.

"The Republic of Armenia announced its intention to further diversify its trade and economic ties. Today, virtually all countries conduct such an economic policy, and it is not done against any country or union... The policy of diversification of [Armenia’s] trade and economic relations is not directed against any unions, especially against the EAEU," said Grigoryan, when asked whether the close interaction of Armenia with the US and the EU hinders its membership in the EAEU, and whether the country is going to leave this union.

A joint meeting on EU-US cooperation with Armenia was held in Brussels on April 5, with the participation of Armenian Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan, European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen, US Secretary of State Antony Blinken, and EU foreign policy chief Josep Borrell. Before the meeting, von der Leyen had pledged to allocate 270 million euros of development assistance to Armenia over the next four years.
