Medvedev: EEU plans to sign over 100 documents in 2015

MOSCOW. KAZINFORM - The Eurasian Economic Union (EEU) is expected to sign over 100 documents in 2015, Russian Premier Dmitry Medvedev said at the meeting of the Eurasian Intergovernmental Council in Moscow's Gorki on 6 February, BelTA has learned.

According to Dmitry Medvedev, the documents will include the EEU Customs Code, the common oil and gas market development concept, the order of concluding international agreements between the EEU and third countries. There are also plans to remove the existing barriers in mutual trade.

The Russian PM stated that the Eurasian Economic Union went operational in the complicated conditions. "We had hardly overcome the consequences of the 2008 crisis when we faced the unprecedented external pressure and saw our oil prices dropped. It could not but affect our partners," Dmitry Medvedev said. In his words, the current situation does not have simple and fast solutions and the EEU economies will have to adapt to the new conditions within the next year or two.

"Our integration priorities, however, remain unchanged," Dmitry Medvedev said. He also wished Belarus a successful chairmanship in the Eurasian Economic Union in 2015, BelTA reports.
