Putin highlights external projection of Eurasian Economic Union

Moscow, May 21 (Prensa Latina) President Vladimir Putin said on Friday that 'we are watching with satisfaction that the integration processes within the Eurasian Economic Union are drawing the attention of several countries'.

The president stated during a video conference of the Supreme Eurasian Economic Council that the EEU’s external relations are expanding and diversifying at a constant rate.

The presidents of Kazakhstan, Kasim-Yomart Tokaev; Belarus, Alexander Lukashenko; Kirgizstan, Ulukbek Maripov; and the interim Prime Minister of Armenia, Nikol Pashinyan, as well the Presidents of Cuba, Miguel Diaz-Canel, and Uzbekistan, Shavkat Mirziyoyev, took part in the conference, with the latter two countries as EEU Observer States.

Putin stressed that the bloc is applying successfully a flexible system of interaction with its member States, the integration structures and international organizations.

In his words, this system allows maintaining and developing commercial and economic ties with different partners, taking into account their attitude and will to build joint cooperation based on mutual benefit and respect.

Putin expressed his support for the proposal of establishing preferential agreements with the EEU’s most important partners, and recalled that these kinds of agreements have already been signed with Vietnam, Serbia, Iran and Singapore.

The Russian president also considered important the fact that the bloc keeps moving ahead on integration based on China’s ‘One Belt, One Road’ initiative.

he added that despite the difficulties caused by Covid-19 to the global economy, the trade of the Union continues to grow, and this is a good sign that ‘we are acting in the right direction and our efforts are bringing concrete results’.
