ALPBACH (Austria), (Sputnik) – The Russia-led EEU, comprising Armenia, Belarus, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan and Russia, is an international organization which aims at streamlining free flow of goods and services between its member countries.
“The long-term goal of establishing a free-trade area between those two bodies of integration [EU and EEU] should remain on the table. For a start, it would be expedient to set up initial working contacts between the European Union and the Eurasian Economic Commission. It is welcoming that many within the EU are finally coming around to this idea,” Chizhov said at the European Forum Alpbach in Austria.
The Russian envoy to the 28-nation bloc warned of numerous security challenges faced by both EU countries and Russia that ignored borders. He urged to restore cooperation on combating these threats to the level achieved before the breakout of the Ukrainian crisis.
