 Lukashenko Explained to Ukraine How to Join Customs Union

Ukraine will participate in the economic union with Belarus, Russia and Kazakhstan but joining these processes should not be selective.

President of Belarus Alexander Lukashenko in Moscow summed up his participation in the meetings of the Collective Security Treaty Organization, Eurasian Economic Community and the Customs Union Troika, reports Interfax-Ukraine.

"Ukraine is very interested in this issue, and the interest is high. But accession to the individual documents is impossible," he said.

Belarusian President said that in Moscow participants of the integration organizations had given a clear message to those who are ready to join the Customs Union and the Common Economic Space, and subsequently to the Eurasian Economic Union.

"Please the door is open. Pass the documents, make them your laws and come - we will cooperate," said Lukashenko.

The President stated that "Our integrated economic union has become very attractive."

In particular, he recalled the commitment of Vietnam to cooperate with the Customs Union. Also continued the head of Belarus "The European Commission is increasingly looking at our new effective education."

Lukashenko said that the meeting of the Supreme Eurasian Economic Council identified the stages of formation of the Eurasian Economic Union.

In particular, the President of Belarus noted that "by mid-2014 a draft agreement, the document on the creation of our future economic union should be ready."

Lukashenko also underlined that "we in no way shall be ahead of ourselves but we also shall not slow down."

The President noted that the heads of the Custom Union states agreed to "meet at least four times a year."

"We had a very frank conversation today, we have been removed some roughness, and things we did not agree on. This is very important because trillions of dollars, euros depend on our solutions," said the President of Belarus.
