MINSK, April 6. /TASS/. Belarusian leadership does not rule out that the Customs Code of the Eurasian Economic Union (EAEU) will be signed in the nearest future, spokesman of the country’s Foreign Ministry Dmitry Mironchik said Thursday.
"As of now the analysis of all papers proposed for signing in December 2016 has been completed, and we assume no open questions to us will be left in the nearest future," he said.
According to Mironchik, Minsk consistently advocates for a close integration within the Eurasian Economic Union and is strongly committed to the implementation of all agreements that have been reached at all levels.
He added that the Belarusian side also welcomes the proposal to grant an observer status to Moldova within the EAEU. "The issue is on the agenda of the EAEU Supreme Council in Bishkek (due on April 14 - TASS)," Mironchik said, adding that Belarus has close friendly ties with Moldova, and "is interested in further expansion of trade and economic cooperation with the country and is ready to implement it through all mechanisms, ranging from CIS mechanisms to the EAEU observer status."
Presidents of four EAEU member-states (Russia, Kyrgyzstan, Armenia and Kazakhstan) signed the EAEU Customs Code at the meeting of the Supreme Eurasian Economic Council on December 26, 2016 in St. Petersburg. Belarusian President Alexander Lukashenko was absent from the meeting.
The Customs Code of the EAEU will succeed to the Customs Code of the Customs Union approved in 2009. It is expected to come into force starting July 1, 2017.
