MOSCOW, 26 August (BelTA) - The countries of the Eurasian Economic Union will continue to work on an international agreement on the common gas market, the official representative of the Eurasian Economic Commission (EEC) Iya Malkina told a briefing for the press following the meeting of the Eurasian Intergovernmental Council in Kyrgyzstan on 25-26 August, BelTA has learned.

"This issue was on the preliminary agenda. Yet one of the parties suggested giving it a brief coverage since several positions on the draft international treaty remained unharmonized. A coordinated decision by the heads of government and heads of state is required," Iya Malkina said.

"The heads of government suggested that the EEC should continue to work on the rapprochement of the positions of the parties on this agreement by the next meeting of the intergovernmental council. At the same time, the parties agreed that the agreement itself will be of a framework nature, and that every effort will be made to ensure that the agreement enters into force in the next two years," she stressed.

There was a list of about 20 disagreements as the parties started working on the draft international agreement on the common gas market. The vast majority of them have already been removed. "Three remained by this meeting in Kyrgyzstan," Iya Malkina said.

The EEC official representative would not elaborate on the remaining differences. "The heads of government will soon hold additional consultations at the national level on those three key issues that remain unsettled. We very much hope that we will return to this issue at the next meeting of the Eurasian Intergovernmental Council," Iya Malkina added.
