Minsk summit to consider draft concept of EurAsEC international activity

Leaders of Eurasian Economic Community (EurAsEC) will discuss a draft concept of international activity of the organisation, BelTA reported quoting Belarusian Foreign Ministry.

The report said the draft has been drawn up by Belarus in pursuance of the proposals which the state leader forwarded at the Interstate Council sitting on 25 January this year.

Alexander Lukashenko called on to take enthusiastic and well-balanced actions to enhance the EurAsEC international role. "Our goal is to ensure the EurAsEC a decent place in the system of international organizations. I believe we need to draw up a document which would secure the consolidated approach of the member states in this issue", he said.

EurAsEC leaders will host their summit in Minks, Belarusian capital, on 23 June.

The EurAsEC includes Belarus, Russia, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan, and Uzbekistan. The EurAsEC creation treaty was signed in Astana on October 10, 2000. The organization aims at promoting the creation of the common customs and economic space in the CIS. The coordination of WTO accession efforts of the member countries is another priority of EurAsEC.
