BRUSSELS, November 23. /TASS/. Relationship between the European Union (EU) and Eurasian Economic Union (EAEU) may only be developed in case Minsk agreements are implemented, the European Commission (EC) representative Margaritis Schinas said when commenting EC President Jean-Claude Juncker’s offer to Russian President Vladimir Putin on cooperation between the two bodies.

"I would like to get back to the letter by the President [of EC Jean-Claude] Juncker to President [Vladimir] Putin, which was sent several days ago. This letter is nothing new. Creation of a common economic space is a long-standing goal and also part of terms implied by agreements made in Minsk. That’s why in this letter Juncker simply repeated his position, voiced after Minsk agreements were signed, and his readiness to implement all points of the agreements," he said.

"It’s only possible to develop relations between the EU and EAEU if Minsk agreements are implemented and all member-countries are engaged," he said.
