Belarus prime minister approves of different-speed integration in ex-USSR

MOSCOW, 6 February (BelTA) – The availability of different-speed integration in the post-Soviet space allows resolving problems within the framework of various integration formats. The opinion was voiced by Prime Minister of Belarus Andrei Kobyakov after the first session of the Eurasian Intergovernmental Council in the Gorki residence near Moscow on 6 February, BelTA has learned.

“If we cannot handle something in the Commonwealth of Independent States, we deal with it in the Eurasian Economic Union. If that doesn’t work, we resolve it in the Union State [of Belarus and Russia],” said Andrei Kobyakov.

He remarked that the Union State is still the most advanced integration project, which is often used as the engine for other integration processes. The CIS influences economic integration to a lesser degree, nevertheless, a free trade zone agreement has been signed within the framework of the Commonwealth of Independent States. Andrei Kobyakov mentioned the Eurasian Economic Union as the most advanced association from the point of view of economic integration. To confirm that he mentioned that the determination of the status of the Eurasian Economic Union product had been discussed at the session of the Eurasian Intergovernmental Council among other things. The Prime Minister of Belarus explained that if any product is made in an EEU member state, it will be classified as domestic across the entire territory of the Eurasian Economic Union by default.
