The document is now pending ratification by President Vladimir Putin.
“The accession treaty is a fundamental document that lays out the terms of Armenia’s membership in the Eurasian Economic Union based on an arrangement reached among the Russian Federation, the Republic of Belarus and the Republic of Kazakhstan,” Armenpress reports, citing the statement posted on the Russian Government’s website.
The Russian cabinet members also approved the Eurasian Economic Union Treaty which will be submitted to the president for a further ratification by the State Duma (parliament). The document also needs to be adopted by the governments of the other founding member states, Kazakhstan and Belarus.
Armenian Prime Minister said earlier at a press briefing that the country is most likely to become a full member of the Russia-led bloc in October.
