HONG KONG (Sputnik) — Moscow is ready to discuss the introduction of a free trade zone between the  Russia-led Eurasian Economic Union (EEU) and Hong Kong, Russian Deputy Prime Minister Arkady Dvorkovich said Monday.

"We have recently reached the first agreement about a free trade zone between the Eurasian [Economic] Union and Vietnam, now we are engaged in negotiations with Israel. We are ready to discuss this issue with Hong Kong," Dvorkovich  said speaking at the Asian Financial Forum in Hong Kong.

The EEU, comprising Russia, Armenia, Belarus, Kazakhstan and Kyrgyzstan, is an international organization that encourages regional economic integration through the free movements of goods, services, and people within the union.

Vietnam became the first country to sign a free trade agreement with the EEU in May. More than 40 countries and international organizations, including China, Indonesia, Israel and Iran have expressed interest in creating a free trade area with the bloc.
