ASTANA, October 4 (Itar-Tass) - Further fields of cooperation to strengthen integration have been determined in a statement made by Presidents of Kazakhstan and Belarus, Nursultan Nazarbayev and Alexander Lukashenko, after the talks on Friday.
Speaking at a news briefing, Nazarbayev said, “We’ve signed a joint statement to determine fields of our future work. The document proves the common drive for developing friendly relations.”
Both countries have no political and economic problems. “We’re building a new integration union and we hope that the future Eurasian economic union will be useful for all countries,” Nazarbayev said.
Lukashenko named the Eurasian economic union, which was being created, as the unique association on the post-Soviet space. “Of course, it will give big opportunities to our economies. It is necessary to use the advantages of the common economic space in maximum in order to strengthen mutually advantageous relations between our countries,” the Belarusian president said.
He believes that a roadmap on trade and economic cooperation in 2014-2016 will help carry out the task. “The document embraces all fields of cooperation,” Lukashenko said.
Within Lukashenko’s visit to Astana Kazakhstan and Belarus signed interstate agreements on the stay of citizens and an inter-governmental agreement on readmission, a roadmap on trade and economic cooperation, and an agreement on cooperation between the academies of state administration.
