MOSCOW, December 24. /ITAR-TASS/. A roadmap for Armenia’s accession to the Customs Union may be approved on Tuesday, Russian President Vladimir Putin told an extended meeting of the Supreme Eurasian Economic Council.
“I believe that we can well approve a plan of actions on Armenia’s accession or a so-called roadmap today,” Putin emphasized.
Putin added that the roadmap was practically ready for Kyrgyzstan. “We still have several unresolved questions raised by Bishkek,” Putin said.
“I am convinced that together with our Kyrgyz friends we will be able to find mutually acceptable solutions. That is why we have invited the presidents of Armenia and Kyrgyzstan to the extended meeting,” the Russian president went on to say.
Putin believes that the future of the large-scale Customs Union integration project will largely depend on coherent and well-coordinated actions in all areas of interaction.
“Russia is certainly ready for this joint work,” Putin emphasized.
The Russian president noted that Eurasian economic integration created conditions for dynamic development of its member countries.
“Despite a negative global situation, the common market of the three (Customs Union states) is expanding,” the Russian president said. The share of primary goods in export-import operations is shrinking.
“Reciprocal trade in primary goods is on the decline while trade in high-tech goods is rising,” Putin said.
He added that the Customs Union members were not separating themselves from other markets. “On the contrary, we seek harmonious interaction with other countries concerned,” the Russian head of state stressed.
