The EurAsEC is to be disbanded in connection with the beginning of operation of the Eurasian Economic Union (EEU) on January 1, 2015
MOSCOW, October 9. /TASS/. The Eurasian Economic Community (EurAsEC) of Russia, Belarus, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan and Tajikistan will be liquidated after 14 years of work, Russian presidential aide Yury Ushakov told reporters on Thursday. The five leaders’ meeting in Minsk on October 10 will be the last in the format of this organization, he added.
The Kremlin official said the EurAsEC is to be disbanded in connection with the beginning of operation of the Eurasian Economic Union (EEU) on January 1, 2015. The five presidents will sign in Minsk the agreement on the termination of EurAsEC.
“The EurAsEC activity will be terminated, although its secretariat will continue functioning until early 2015, and after that the organization will cease to exist,” Ushakov said. He said the EurAsEC “created a major international treaty framework (215 agreements) for multilateral trade-economic cooperation, providing the foundation for Eurasian integration development.” “A considerable part of the Community functions has already been transferred to the Eurasian Economic Union of Russia, Belarus and Kazakhstan and many documents have been reissued,” he said.
The Kremlin official added that in the spheres that do not fall under the Eurasian Union regulation (social-humanitarian, inter-regional cooperation, sectoral interaction), the implementation of previously concluded international agreements and adopted interstate target programs would be continued at the interstate level. Tair Mansurov is EurAsEC Secretary General. Russia holds EurAsEC presidency since 2011.
