MOSCOW, 25 May (BelTA) - The best practices of the Belarus-Russia Union State may be in demand in the development of the Eurasian Economic Union (EAEU), Belarusian President Aleksandr Lukashenko said at a meeting of the Supreme Eurasian Economic Council in Moscow on 25 May, BelTA has learned.
“Belarus supports the need to identify approaches to the formation of a new strategy of Eurasian integration until 2030, or even 2045, initiated as part of the Russian presidency,” the head of state said. “At the same time I would like to emphasize that while working out relevant strategic documents our Union may be interested in the experience of certain initiatives at the level of the Union State of Belarus and Russia that the president of Kazakhstan spoke so much about at the forum yesterday.”
Aleksandr Lukashenko warned against excessive enthusiasm for strategic planning. “At least, this useful work should not cancel or replace the practical activities to implement the goals and objectives of the EAEU Treaty, which are already being carried out by the member states and the Commission. In general, there are a lot of specific issues that need to be addressed. They are on the surface,” the Belarusian leader said.
Aleksandr Lukashenko is convinced that through joint efforts the parties will be able to fully realize the potential of the Eurasian Economic Union both inside and outside the union. Thus, they will be able to develop one of the full-fledged and responsible centers of the new multipolar world.
