ASTANA, June 02. /ITAR-TASS/. The Eurasian Economic Union (EEU) is not a closed organization. On the contrary, it remains open for cooperation with other countries, Kazakhstan’s Foreign Minister Yerlan Idrisov told a news conference on Monday.
“We welcome every opportunity to cooperate with the global community,” he said.
The treaty to create the union, signed by presidents of Russia, Kazakhstan and Belarus Vladimir Putin, Nursultan Nazarbayev and Alexander Lukashenko, in Astana on May 29, should create “better opportunities for integration with each other”, Idrisov said, adding that the parties had agreed on the dominant principles of equality and transparency within the assembly.
“There are certain plans which will be put into action," Idrisov said. "They are quite simple — not to stay on the periphery of global economic trends and to become stronger in the face of the current economic crisis,” the minister said, noting that union countries together accounted for 15% of the world's territory and a quarter of its natural resources, including 15% of raw hydrocarbon deposits.
