MINSK, September 1 (Itar-Tass) — Kyrgyzstan should make a long way to become a member of the common economic space, Belarusian President Alexander Lukashenko said.
“Recently Kazakhstan has backed Kyrgyzstan’s drive for joining the Customs Union. We also support Kyrgyzstan’s intention. But the country should make a long way to join the common economic space,” Lukashenko told journalists on Saturday.
The Belarusian president explained that Kyrgyzstan should ratify “a package of documents, which will become laws later”. “Then we will debate this issue and take a decision on Kyrgyzstan’s accession to the common economic space,” Lukashenko stressed.
Commenting on Kyrgyzstan’s drive, the Belarusian president said, “Why not to support the country’s intention. This is a big problem if Kyrgyzstan is a member of the future Eurasian economic union. Much should be done to become a member of the common economic space.”
In his view, there is no need to compare with the European Union because “it had a common currency. But the common economic space has no it yet”.
According to Lukashenko, “the weak economy puts an influence upon stronger economies and creates problems for these states. That is why by taking a decision we should take it into account. And this is not tomorrow’s issue.”
