Aysor – The Iranian government has submitted Iran-EAEU draft free trade agreement to the parliament’s foreign relations and security affairs committee. After it is discussed at the committee it will be sent to the parliament’s plenary session for further discussion, Iranian lawmaker of Armenian decent George Abrahamyan said, speaking to Aysor.am.

“There is no such understanding. Such bills pass without any confrontations being guided with the interest of the country. This is our general policy.

He said after the ratification the bill will be sent to the body controlling the constitutional law and after its approval it will enter into force.
