ASTANA, April 22. /TASS/. The integration processes in the European Union have become an example for creating the Eurasian Economic Union (EAEU), Kazakhstan’s Foreign Minister Erlan Idrissov said on Friday speaking at the XIII Eurasian Media Forum in Astana.
"Our idea of the Eurasian economic integration was largely inspired by the model of the EU integration," he said during a debate on the EU’s future.
According to the minister, the world has not yet created a better association model than the European Union, which "was able to establish economic and political integration to promote peace and prosperity on a vast territory with a population of more than 500 million people." Idrissov noted that for Kazakhstan relations with the EU hold a special place. He recalled that the country signed "the second-generation strategic cooperation agreement" with the European Union.
