MOSCOW, July 12. /TASS/. Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev and his Belarusian counterpart Andrey Kobyakov will discuss cooperation in the framework of the Eurasian Economic Union (EAEU) in Moscow on Tuesday.
Russian government’s press service said earlier that "during talks between chairman of the Russian government and Belarusian Prime Minister Andrey Kobyakov, the sides will touch upon relevant issues of Russian-Belarusian trade and economic cooperation and cooperation in the framework of the Eurasian Economic Union."
Contacts at highest level
Moscow and Minsk are in constant close contact on issues of bilateral cooperation and working together in the framework of integration associations. In particular, Medvedev and Kobyakov last met in May in the Belarusian city of Mogilev at the session of the council of ministers of the Union State of Russia and Belarus. During bilateral talks, the prime ministers discussed Russian-Belarusian projects and trade issues.
The last meeting at the level of presidents took place at the beginning of June, when Vladimir Putin visited Minsk to take part in the Forum of Regions. Putin and his Belarusian counterpart Alexander Lukashenko then discussed ways to boost trade turnover between the countries, as well as re-export of sanctioned products to Russia via Belarus. The heads of states agreed to cooperate more closely on this issue.
Eurasian Economic Union
The Treaty on the establishment of the Eurasian Economic Union was signed by the presidents of Russia, Belarus and Kazakhstan on May 29, 2014 in Astana.
The agreement is the basic document defining the accords between Russia, Belarus and Kazakhstan for creating the Eurasian Economic Union for the free movement of goods, services, capital and workforce and conducting coordinated, agreed or common policies in key sectors of the economy, such as energy, industry, agriculture and transport.
The agreement stipulates the transition of Russia, Belarus and Kazakhstan to the next stage of integration after the Customs Union and the common economic space. Kyrgyzstan and Armenia also joined the EAEU.
