Lukashenko names best practices in Union State for EAEU to adopt

MINSK, 25 February (BelTA) – There is something the Eurasian Economic Union may borrow from the Union State of Belarus and Russia, Belarusian President Aleksandr Lukashenko told the media, BelTA has learned.

“As for the free trade zones and the EAEU, we consider all suggestions and proposals,” the head of state emphasized. - There are a lot of them. You see that Iran and the Arab countries are looking to have free trade zones with us in order to trade more freely. Therefore, we are open to this. Sometimes, we see some ambitions, absolutely fair ambitions...

"Let's say China. Why should they have a free trade zone if they have the SCO, a broader organization that might have a free trade zone like the EAEU does," Aleksandr Lukashenko said.

The president also expressed his opinion: “The EAEU should in turn adopt our best practices - open borders and complete freedom for the movement of people and workforce. We do not have any barriers here today. We are doing everything for the benefit of our people.”

“I think the EAEU should follow suit,” Aleksandr Lukashenko believes.

“We have political, diplomatic and military components in the Union State, which the EAEU does not have,” he said.

“I think these are the main issues that the EAEU should see and adopt from the Union State,” the head of state added.
