President of Belarus Alexander Lukashenko said that Belarus was ready to sign an agreement on the transformation of the Eurasian Economic Community (EEC) in the Eurasian Economic Union (EEC). According to the Belarusian leader, the signing of the document was postponed at the insistence of the Kazakh side.
Alexander Lukashenko noted in an interview with TV channel Russia Today on March 20 that Belarus, as well as Russia, finds it necessary to accelerate the process of signing the contract, but Kazakhstan "categorically opposed an economic union" at the meeting of the EurAsEC Interstate Council.
Meanwhile, the source of the BBC Russian Service reported that the formation of the EEC Treaty hadn't been signed mainly because of objections of the Belarusian side. According to the source, Belarus insisted that any EEC decision could be blocked at the state level, while Russia believes that the final decision on the EEC should be taken by the Supreme Council of the Union.
As Telegraf previously reported, March 19, at a meeting of the EurAsEC Interstate Council in Moscow, Russian President Dmitry Medvedev informed about the plans to pass to creating the Eurasian Economic Union by 2015. EurAsEC institutions will be reformed at the next summit of Heads of State, after further consultations, said Russian President Dmitry.
