KAZAKHSTAN RATIFIES EURASEC CUSTOMS UNION AGREEMENT

The Kazakh parliament has ratified an agreement on establishing a customs union within the framework of the Eurasian Economic Community (Eurasec), a spokesman for the upper house of parliament said on Tuesday.
The agreement on establishing the customs union was signed by the presidents of Russia, Belarus and Kazakhstan in Dushanbe, Tajikistan in October 2007.
"At a plenary meeting, the members of the Senate adopted the law 'On the ratification of the agreement on establishing a joint customs zone and forming a customs union'," the spokesman said.
The document is to be later signed by Kazakh President Nursultan Nazarbayev.
The three other members of Eurasec - Tajikistan, Uzbekistan and Kyrgyzstan - will also be able to join the customs union.
