KYRGYZ PREMIER DISCUSSES NEW REGIONAL CUSTOMS UNION IN MOSCOW
Prime Minister Igor Chudinov on 26 January 2008 concluded an official two-day visit to Russia, after participating in a Moscow summit meeting of the Eurasian Economic Community (EurAsEC), AKIpress reported. Chudinov joined his counterparts from Kazakhstan, Russia, and Belarus on 25 January to discuss the terms of a draft agreement to create a new customs union agreement. The customs agreement, which follows a series of negotiations between the presidents of the EurAsEC Member states in 2006, is to "abolish artificial obstacles" to the movement of "people and goods" and seeks to foster eased transit and migration. Following an initial agreement among Belarus, Kazakhstan, and Russia to sign the agreement, the organization now plans on launching talks with the three remaining EurAsEC members - Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan, and Uzbekistan - for their subsequent ratification.
