Pashinyan may join Supreme Eurasian Economic Council

The Kazakh parliament approved the ratification of the protocol on making amendments to the Treaty on the Eurasian Economic Union (EEU).

The objective of this protocol is to make an amendment to the treaty’s point with respect to confirming the possibility of not just the head of an EEU member country, but also its head of government being part of the Supreme Eurasian Economic Council, the highest supranational body of the EEU.

According to the Kazakh Senate press service, the need to make amendments to the EEU treaty was due to the constitutional amendments made in Armenia last year, when the republic has passed to a parliamentary system of governance, reported.

This envisions the transfer of the president’s main powers in foreign policy to the government and prime minister of Armenia - Nikol Pashinyan.
