Kyrgyz Ambassador to Belarus: In the long term EEU will play a strategic role for its member-countries

Bishkek, December 22 / Kabar /. In the long term the European Economic Union (EEU) will play a strategic role for its member-countries, Kyrgyz Ambassador to Belarus Kubanychbek Omuraliev said in his interview to Belarus media.

He said that the EEU has been operating for 2 years, but Kyrgyzstan joined it a year and a half ago. “Now the state itself, and people do not feel the effect of the integration. On the contrary, with the start of integration there was a financial crisis, mutual trade between the countries fell,” the Ambassador said.

Omuraliev explained that this is the short-term effect. “In the long term, the union will play a strategic role for our countries. It became easier for ordinary citizens who work outside the country, because now we are all in a single economic space, to move freely, with no obstacles,” he said.

“The integration processes is all over the world,” he said and cited as a example the European Union with its single currency. “We must be united: we have lived separately. This is especially important for our countries - more recently we have had a common history, geography, common cultural values, spiritual, cultural and educational ties. The integration in a good way - without all sorts of obstacles, bureaucracy - will help us bring back the best of what we had,” the Kyrgyz Ambassador said.
