MOSCOW, May 6. /TASS/. A summit of the Eurasian Economic Union (EEU) will discuss complexities that emerged during Kyrgyzstan’s accession to the post-Soviet trade bloc, Kremlin aide Yuri Ushakov said on Wednesday.
"The main issue will probably be Kyrgyzstan’s accession to the Union. Practical difficulties have emerged in this process in the past few days and they will be discussed," the presidential aide said.
In March, Kyrgyzstan ‘opened the protocols approved at the inter-governmental level and proposed some amendments, which the Union’s participations do not consider as logical and in this regard the Kyrgyz issue will undoubtedly be discussed," Ushakov said.
The Higher Eurasian Economic Council will hold its session on May 8. This will be the first full-format meeting of the EEU's member states since it was launched on January 1, 2015.
The summit participants plan to sign two protocols, supplementing the agreement on Kyrgyzstan’s accession to the EEU. The documents will detail the terms of the Central Asian republic’s membership in the EEU, regulate the entire range of issues related to trade, customs administration, transport policy and contain the list of provisional regulations and exemptions applied to Kyrgyzstan.
The Council’s session also plans to discuss the guidelines of the EEU’s macroeconomic policy in 2015-2016.
The presidents of the EEU member states will discuss measures for the support of foreign trade with third countries.
