ASTANA, October 6. /TASS/. Tajikistan fully supports the idea of building the Eurasian Economic Union (EAEU) and the Silk Road Economic Belt and believes that this will contribute to the successful implementation of important initiatives and further development and deepening of trade and economic relations between partner countries, speaker of the lower house of the Tajik parliament Shukurdzhon Zukhurov told the Eurasian Economic Outlook forum on Tuesday. The forum is being held in Astana at the initiative of the parliaments of Kazakhstan and Russia.
"Tajikistan completely supports the idea of discussing the issues of cooperation on conjugating the construction of the Eurasian Economic Union and the Silk Road Economic Belt, since we are convinced that the recommendations developed here will promote the successful implementation of these initiatives and further development and deepening of trade and economic relations between our countries," the speaker said. He noted that "Tajikistan was cooperating closely with the Eurasian Economic Union member-countries and fully supported the initiative to create the Silk Road Economic Belt."
According to Shukurdzhon Zukhurov, "during the implementation of projects within the framework of the EAEU and the Silk Road Economic Belt interests of all countries in the region should be taken into account on the basis of mutual benefit from the trade, economic, infrastructure and investment cooperation with the minimization of long-term effects of such participation." He added that "this would require time and a great deal of effort to create the institutional and legal framework.".
