Not only economic, but also political and national security factors are taken into account when presenting the legislative proposal to ban the import of Turkish products to Armenia, Artak Manukyan, a member of the NA My Step faction, told "Lurer".
According to the MP, the income generated for the imported goods is actually used by that country to kill an Armenian soldier and commit various crimes.
"Our country has unilaterally initiated this process, which will be notified to the EEU countries if approved by the Government. Decisions in the EEU must be based on consensus, but there is a provision that any country can impose tariff restrictions or regulations on another country and unilaterally ban trade relations with any country for a period of six months", he said. Manukyan stressed that the law envisages six months, but how many times it is possible to apply those six months, in fact, there is no limit, and, according to Manukyan, it is not ruled out that we will apply it every six months.
The MP stressed that soft loans and consulting services will also be provided to enable importers to continue importing from alternative markets. Manukyan stressed that this is also a good opportunity for local producers to present more competitive products to the market.
According to the MP, we are dealing with an adventurous country and it will be very extraordinary if we carry out continuous imports from that country, with various dangers arising from it.
