MINSK, September 24 /TASS/. Belarus, which is holding the Eurasian Economic Union (EEU) presidency in 2015, will submit a draft resolution on granting observer status to EEU at the UN General Assembly to the 70th session of the UN General Assembly in New York, Dmitry Mironchik, the spokesman for the Belarusian Foreign Ministry, told journalists on Thursday.
"Belarus is planning to push through two Belarusian draft resolutions at the 70th session of the UN General Assembly. The first document is our traditional resolution calling for coordinated efforts in fighting trade in humans. The second draft resolution suggests granting an observer status to the Eurasian Economic Union at the United Nations General Assembly," the spokesman said.
Minsk welcomes the fact that for the first time in the UN history careful economic calculations have been made to work out a common vision of ways of improving the living conditions of the planet’s population in a long-term perspective.
The Belarusian delegation took an active part in preparing the summit’s final document as a member of the UN General Assembly working group for sustainable development and within the framework of inter-governmental negotiations for drafting the summit’s final document.
"We attach great importance to success of the UN-2015 summit," Mironchik stressed.
