Official Brussels again warned Armenia against combining participation of the Customs Union with the agreement on free trade area.

Chairman of the European Parliament Committee on Foreign Affairs Elmar Brok said these agreements are legally conflicting.

EU cannot sign a Deep and Comprehensive Free Trade Agreement with a member state of Russia-initiated customs union, Brok said in an interview with Armenian service of RFE/RL.
