MOSCOW, December 24, 21:38 /ITAR-TASS/. The Customs Union member states believe that the European and Eurasian integration could effectively supplement each other, Russian President Vladimir Putin told journalists after a meeting of the Supreme Eurasian Economic Council in the Kremlin on Tuesday.
He emphasized that the three members of the Customs Union, comprising Russia, Belarus and Kazakhstan, did not try to separate themselves from other markets.
“On the contrary, they seek to develop multidimensional cooperation both with separate countries and integration associations, including the European Union,” Putin said.
The Russian president hopes that the issue would be part of the agenda at the forthcoming Russia-EU summit.
