Kyrgyzstan plans to enter the Eurasian Economic Union (EAU) by late 2014, Kyrgyz President Almazbek Atambayev said on May 29.
He made the remarks at the expanded meeting of the Supreme Eurasian Economic Council in Astana.
"Of course, we would like to meet the New Year in the Eurasian Economic Union," the Kyrgyz president said.
He went on to add that the Eurasian Economic Union will be a mutually beneficial platform for all the member states.
"I'm confident that the Eurasian Economic Union will be an effective organization that will create a mutually beneficial platform for all the member states. The integration into the Customs Union and the subsequent accession to the EAU will be a deliberate decision and the most important vector of the economic policy of Kyrgyzstan," Atambayev said.
"The member states of the Customs Union are not only our economic partners, first of all, they are congenial countries bound by history and they do not have any language barriers. We have a common history and I'm confident that we have a common future as well."
He also underscored the deepening of the cooperation by pursuing a mutually beneficial industrial and economic policy will allow optimization of the overall structure of the economy and each country will get dividends.
Atambayev said that the creation of joint production chains will allow all the members states to hold leading positions in the global economy and the progressive integration principles will allow these countries to strengthen the region's stability and security.
He went on to add that the fulfillment of these tasks completely meets the national interests of Kyrgyzstan and all Customs Union countries.
"I believe that the partnership with our country will give opportunity to all countries of the Customs Union to more easily and quickly solve regional problems, not to mention the enormous geopolitical advantages," the Kyrgyz president concluded.
