MOSCOW, October 27. /TASS/. Moscow is calling on Europe to draw the right conclusions from events in Ukraine, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov told a joint meeting of the boards of the Foreign Ministries of Russia and Belarus on Tuesday.
"It is necessary to draw the right conclusions from the dramatic events in Ukraine and begin work to form a common economic and humanitarian space from Lisbon to Vladivostok relying on the principles of equal and indivisible security and broad cooperation," he said. "Within the framework of a large-scale project the progressive development of all countries of our common continent without exception may be achieved."
"We assume that the most important component of the work in this area is the progressive harmonization of the European and Eurasian integration processes," Lavrov noted. "Today we will consider, together with Belarusian friends, the possibility of a mutually advantageous dialogue between the EAEU and the EU."
"We believe that there are all necessary pre-conditions for the rapprochement between the EAEU and the EU, including the commitment to the single trade rules. Recently, a relevant proposal has been handed over to Brussels by the Eurasian Economic Commission. We hope it will draw a constructive response from the Europeans," the minister said.
