BISHKEK, May 21. /TASS/. Kyrgyzstan’s President Almazbek Atambayev signed a law on Thursday approved by the country’s parliament on accession to the Eurasian Economic Union (EAEU).
The law officially enters into force on Thursday.
Kyrgyzstan will be able to open its borders with other EAEU member-states only after the parliaments of the countries ratify the treaty. Kyrgyzstan Economy Minister Oleg Pankratov said the Kyrgyz side was planning to ask its partners not to postpone the consideration of this issue until autumn.
Kyrgyz authorities decided to join the Moscow-led Customs Union of Russia, Belarus and Kazakhstan in the spring of 2011. Six months later, the former Soviet republic filed an official request. A treaty on the republic’s accession to the Customs Union and the newly-formalised Eurasian Economic Union was signed in December.
The Eurasian Economic Union, which envisages free movement of goods, services, capital and labour and is based on the Customs Union, started operating in January, replacing the Eurasian Economic Community, which officially ceased to exist last October.
Membership is open to other states assessed as sharing the assembly's aims and principles, its founders say.
