BEIJING, July 17 /TASS/. The Eurasian Economic Union (EEU) and the European Union will be able to find the key to settling the Ukraine crisis in a long-term perspective if they reach cooperation agreements with each other and agree to remove economic borders, Tatyana Valovaya, a board member (minister) in charge of key integration areas and macroeconomic policy of the Eurasian Economic Commission, told TASS on Friday.
"For example, I believe that the current thorny situation in the center of Europe linked to the Ukraine crisis can be settled in a long-term perspective if the EEU and the European Union manage to reach agreements with each other. We should start removing the economic frontier between the two unions. That will make it easier for countries like Ukraine and Moldova that are equally interested in maintaining relations with both unions to develop ties with each of them if there are no barriers," Valovaya said.
She added it was vitally important for the EEU to start building a common economic space with Europe.
