BRUSSELS, November 19. /TASS/. European Commission (EC) President Jean-Claude Juncker has sent a letter to Russian President Vladimir Putin offering cooperation between the European Union (EU) and the Eurasian Economic Union (EAEU), a representative in the EC press service told TASS on Thursday.
"Juncker sent a letter to President Putin after a short talk on Monday on the sidelines of the G20 summit," the representative said, adding that "the letter stresses Juncker’s readiness to consider the possibility of cooperation with the EAEU according to established procedure via consultations with member-states and in case Minsk agreements are simultaneously implemented."
In mid-October Russia’s Deputy Minister of Foreign Affairs Alexey Meshkov said that the EAEU member-states, namely Chairman of the Eurasian Economic Commission (EEC) Collegium Viktor Khristenko, had sent a draft agreement on economic cooperation to President of the European Commission Jean-Claude Juncker. The document concerns issues related with integration of the two entities. According to Meshkov, respective proposals were approved at the meeting of the heads of governments of the EAEU member-states on September 8.
