The presidents of Russia, Belarus and Kazakhstan gathered for a summit on Monday to discuss the three countries' integration within the common economic space and the Eurasian Economic Community, RIA Novosti reports.
Medvedev from Russian, Nazarbayev from Kazakhstan and Lukashenko from Belarus have approved decisions to enforce agreements on the free movement of goods, capital and workforce within the common economic space.
In November, the Russian, Belarusian and Kazakh presidents signed a declaration on Eurasian economic integration, a roadmap of integration processes aimed at creating the Eurasian Economic Union, which will be based on the Customs Union and common economic space among the three countries.
Last Friday, WTO trade ministers accepted Russia’s bid to join the world trade club, which Russia had sought to join since 1993.
The leaders of Russia, Belarus and Kazakhstan approved at their summit on Monday Russian Industry and Trade Minister Viktor Khristenko as head of the Eurasian Economic Commission, a new supranational body to integrate the three former Soviet republics within a common economic space.
