Tigran Sargsyan: Legal solutions adopted in the European Union in the formation of supranational institutions are of interest to EEC

4/16/2019

Tigran Sargsyan spoke about the Commission’s activities, institutions and objectives of the Eurasian integration, the results achieved, which confirm the validity of the Union as a full-fledged subject of international law. He stressed that the Eurasian Economic Union (EAEU) is a start-up and, unlike the EU, exclusively economic association.
“The Union formation stage suggests that we should be interested in cooperation with the European organization. Strengthening the EAEU institutional framework is our priority”, the Chairman of the EEC Board said.
Spyridon Flogaitis noted the importance of the EAEU and the Eurasian Economic Commission in the global system of international relations, and the Eurasian region in particular. “It is beyond argument that the Eurasian Economic Commission plays an important and active role in the development of international relations. My visit confirms our great desire and intention to develop deep and comprehensive cooperation with this supranational authority”, noted the Chairman of the EPLO Board of Directors.
During the meeting, Tigran Sargsyan noted that the legal solutions adopted in the European Union in the formation of supranational institutions are of interest to the EEC. The focus was maintained on the European Union’s practice in the sphere of application of supranational legal status as well as delegation of national powers to a supranational authority at each stage of the integration construction.
“Nowadays, the Commission is studying the legal nature of supranational European companies, the European Union’s experience in the formation of legal framework and introduction of tools for free movement of not only goods, but also companies in terms of its implementation in our Union’s law. What rights and obligations this legislation impose on enterprises, how much it stimulates integration – that’s what we are primarily interested in”, the Chairman of the EEC Board stressed.
At the end of the meeting, the parties discussed the prospects of institutionalization and cooperation. For this purpose, in particular, it is planned to develop a document on mutual understanding outlining areas of mutual interest.
