BISHKEK, 9 December (BelTA) – Time has come for a joint summit of the EAEU, SCO and BRICS, Belarusian President Aleksandr Lukashenko said at a meeting of the Supreme Eurasian Economic Council in Bishkek on 9 December, BelTA has learned.
"Recent events have shown that not everyone agrees with the further existence of the unipolar world. As a result, the role of such integration associations as the SCO and BRICS is growing. Our union must keep pace with them. Moreover, I believe that the time has come we hold a summit of the EAEU, SCO and BRICS member countries," the Belarusian head of state said.
"These countries share our position on the need to respect different cultures, views, political systems. Perhaps some ASEAN states will want to take part in such a meeting too," Aleksandr Lukashenko said.
According to him, the core items on the summit agenda could be economic cooperation (for example, the formation of regional trading blocs, the use of national currencies), and also energy and security.
