ASTANA, March 17. /TASS/. Kazakhstan’s President Nursultan Nazarbayev said on Friday he is optimistic about the future of the Eurasian Economic Union, which will be able to cope with the current difficulties and continue its development.
"I am optimistic about the future of the Eurasian Economic Union. It should be developed further," Nazarbayev said in an interview with the country’s mass media. "We do have problems but does the European Union have none? But the general direction is right and we should continue to elaborate the framework."
"These problems, these difficulties, the current crisis will finally go. The situation will smooth out and then we will possibly continue to expand. I am confident that once the Eurasian Economic Union demonstrates good results the European Union will be interested in cooperation with us," he stressed, adding that the market of the Eurasian Economic Union countries with their population of some 180 million is very promisising.
