MINSK, March 21 (Itar-Tass) — An agreement on transformation of the Eurasian Community (EurAsEC) was not signed at the summit in Moscow because Kazakhstan came against it, Belarusian President Alexander Lukashenko told Russia Today on Wednesday.
“We did not sign the draft treaty because Kazakhstan came against this,” Lukashenko said, adding that Kazakhstan had objected proposals by Russians and Belarusians while “we were unanimous to sign the treaty”. “We said it was necessary to sign the treaty on the union. They said this process should not be speeded up. We agreed to bring to the level of ally relationship in 2015 – let’s do it in 2015,” Lukashenko explained.
He said earlier, an agreement had been reached that Russia, Belarus and Kazakhstan would be in the Eurasian economic union from 2015. “At the summit in Moscow Russians proposed to speed up the process. Belarus supported its initiative,” Lukashenko said.
