MINSK, July 13. /TASS/. Belarus is not fully satisfied with the current development dynamics of the Eurasian Economic Union (EEU), Belarusian Foreign Minister Vladimir Makey told the national television late on Sunday.
"We would like to see the Eurasian Economic Union as a dynamically developing regional organization. But today we are not fully satisfied with its development dynamics," he said.
He said his country had initiated a number of measures within its presidency in the EEU. Thus, he reminded that the Union’s heads of government in May 2015 had set a task to draw a list of reservations to be removed in the first hand. "The Eurasian Economic Commission and partner countries are actively working on it," he said. "We are confident it will be crowned with success."
However he noted such things were not done overnight, and "we will exert active efforts in this respect." Makey stressed Belarus would defend its positions to ensure progressive dynamics of the development of integration processes and remover obstacles within the EEU.
"For us, the Eurasian Economic Union is not a toy to be thrown away after playing. From the very start, we planned our participation in this organization so that Belarus could derive maximum advantages for itself and its people," he underscored.
