ST. PETERSBURG, June 17. /TASS/. The talks on the creation of a temporary free trade zone between the Eurasian Economic Union (EAEU) and Iran will be held in end-June, the Eurasian Economic Commission (EEC) Trade Minister Veronika Nikishina said at the St. Petersburg International Economic Forum (SPIEF-2016) on Friday.
"We plan talks in Iran (regarding the temporary free trade zone - TASS) at the end of June," she said.
The list of goods eligible to enter the free trade zone with Iran is being discussed, she said, adding that this may concern both food and non-food products.
The second round of meetings with Iran regarding the issue of creating a big free trade zone may be held not earlier than mid-July, Nikishina said. "We’re also preparing a big agreement, and have prepared a report. By mid-July we will agree joint findings of the report, and then I will be prepared for a trip to Iran in order to finally accord the document," she said.
