MOSCOW, April 2. /TASS/. The agreement on creation of a free trade zone between the Eurasian Economic Union and Iran may be signed within months, Russian Presidential Aide Yuri Ushakov said Monday.
"The talks on drafting a temporary agreement on creation of an EAEU-Iran free trade zone have been finalized. The plan is to sign it within months," he said.
Armenia’s deputy minister of economic development and investment Hovhannes Azizyan said at end-March that the agreement of a free trade zone between the EAEU and Iran might be signed by the end of May for a period of three years.
In March, Iran’s Ambassador to Russia Nehdi Sanaei said in an interview with TASS that the talks on a free trade zone agreement between the Eurasian Economic Union and Iran are close to completion.
