Russia suggests Tajikistan to consider obtaining EAEU observer status

AKIPRESS.COM - Russia proposed Tajikistan to consider the possibility of obtaining observer status in the Eurasian Economic Union (EAEU), said Russia's First Deputy Prime Minister Igor Shuvalov.

"We proposed Tajikistan to seriously look at obtaining EAEU observer status on the backdrop of the bilateral agenda," Shuvalov said after the meeting of the Russian-Tajik intergovernmental commission.

He noted that this status does not entail membership in the Union, does not bear any political aspect, but at the same time promotes trade turnover between the countries.
