MOSCOW, December 24 (Itar-Tass) - Kazakhstan’s President Nursultan Nazarbaev is confident that the integration of Russia, Belarus and Kazakhstan will strengthen national statehood of the three countries.
“The political sovereignty of states in our association is stable and inviolable. Furthermore, we promote economic integration to strengthen national statehood and to make it even stronger through establishing a well-balanced economy,” Nazarbaev said after a meeting of the Supreme Eurasian Economic Council on Tuesday.
He stressed that there should be no doubts about maintaining the sovereignty of states participating in the Economic Union. Such co-operation would bring about “political dividends”, ensure lasting security and promote people’s welfare, Nazarbaev said, adding that “for these three reasons all the states are willing to participate in it”.
Nazarbaev recalled that the Eurasian Economic Union was based on several principles, such as economic pragmatism, regard for national sovereignty, integration on a voluntary basis, equality of participants in decision-making, evolutionary development and openness of the Eurasian space.
“The Eurasian integration is not aimed against other countries or other associations,” Nazarbaev said, noting the increasing interest of other states in this union.
“The integration troika is steadily advancing,” he added.
