Russia is chairing the Eurasian Economic Union in 2017 and will support Kyrgyzstan's integration into this organization, Russian President Vladimir Putin said at the meeting with his Kyrgyz counterpart Almazbek Atambayev in Bishkek Feb. 28, RIA Novosti reported.
He noted that the special tools have been created to soften the Kyrgyzstan's integration into the Eurasian Economic Union, and allow the country's economy to adapt to the rules of the union.
Atambayev, in turn, noted that the relations between two countries have moved to a higher level after Kyrgyzstan’s joining to the Eurasian Economic Union.
He thanked his Russian counterpart for the support and help provided in this period of transition and adaptation.
“I am confident that we will solve all the remaining issues regarding Kyrgyzstan’s full-fledged membership in the Eurasian Economic Union with the help of the fraternal Russia until the end of the year,” Kyrgyz president said.
The Eurasian Economic Union is an international organization for regional economic integration. Its members are Russia, Kazakhstan, Belarus, Kyrgyzstan and Armenia.
