Nazarbayev says EEU is economic project, not USSR rebuilding
Kazakh President Nursultan Nazarbayev said today that the Eurasian Economic Union (EEU) is purely an economic project.
"I would like to emphasize that it is not about any re-establishment of the Soviet Union. It is necessary to overcome the stereotypes of the Cold War. They prevent us looking to the future. The Eurasian Economic Union is purely an economic project," RIA Novosti cited him as saying.
He also noted that the EEU is an economic union with uniform traffic rules of goods, services, capital and labor resources.
Recall, Nazarbayev arrived in Washington to attend the Nuclear Security Summit.
