EEU to set up its own aviation watchdog
The Eurasian Economic Union (EEU) intends to set up an independent body to probe air incidents, Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev said at a Eurasian Inter-Governmental Council meeting.
"The issue of investigating air incidents was raised. We have plans to establish an independent international body to investigate impartially such incidents, taking into account the close integration of the economies of the Eurasian Economic Union," TASS cited Medvedev as saying..
As was reported, the Eurasian Economic Commission, which is the EEU regulating authority, plans to start agreeing a draft agreement in late October on establishing the analogue of the Interstate Aviation Committee.
The draft will be examined in a special working group set up from among experts from the EAEU member states.
