Lukashenko talks about membership of EEC board

ST. PETERSBURG, 20 December (BelTA) – Belarus President Aleksandr Lukashenko talked about the members of the new Board of the Eurasian Economic Commission as he attended the Supreme Eurasian Economic Council meeting in Petersburg on 20 December, BelTA has learned.

“We have just agreed on the membership of the board: Russia will be in charge of trade issues. Belarus will be responsible for technical regulation. The agricultural commission is Armenia’s domain. Belarus holds the presidency. So all these issues have been resolved," the Belarusian leader said.

Belarus’ representative Mikhail Myasnikovich has been appointed Chairman of the Eurasian Economic Commission. He was introduced to the leaders of the countries. “This is a very experienced man. Kazakhstan president Kassym-Jomart Tokayev just sent me a letter giving his consent. Our honorary chairman [Nursultan Nazarbayev] also said that he supports the candidacy of the chairman,” the head of state said.

The narrow-format summit lasted for 10 minutes only. The leaders stated that agreements were reached across the whole range of issues and proceeded to the meeting with the participation of the countries’ delegations.
