ASTANA. KAZINFORM - India is ready for practical cooperation with the Eurasian Economic Union (EEU), says Indian Ambassador to Russia Pankaj Saran, Kazinform has learnt from RIA Novosti.

"We have prepared a report of the joint study group on possible free trade agreement between India and the EEU. This is a very important step. Presently, India and the EEU are negotiating further steps that should be taken in the light of this report.
