Lukashenko suggests postponing EAU formation (Part 2)
MINSK. April 29 (Interfax) - Belarusian President Alexander Lukashenko has suggested that the formation of the Eurasian Economic Union (EAU) should be postponed if the parties are not prepared to fully implement the agreements.
"The approaches emerging during the negotiations raise many questions. Innovative proposals on the 10-year deadline for the agreements, by 2025, sound odd, to say the least," Lukashenko said at a meeting of the Supreme Eurasian Economic Council in Minsk on Tuesday.
"If we are not prepared to adopt these measures now, then this should be acknowledged," the Belarusian president said.
