MOSCOW, 13 December (BelTA) – There are no plans for expanding the Eurasian Economic Union in the near future, Chairman of the Eurasian Economic Commission (EEC) Tigran Sargsyan told the media on 13 December, BelTA has learned.

“The presidents have not set such a task. This matter is not on the agenda,” Tigran Sargsyan said when asked whether the EAEU will expand and whether Tajikistan and Azerbaijan will join the union.

The EEC has been working on free trade area agreements with seven countries, including China, Iran, India, and Serbia, the EEC chairman added.

The EAEU comprises five states: Belarus, Armenia, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, and Russia.
