    MOSCOW (Sputnik) Turkey is interested in intensifying its cooperation with the Eurasian Economic Union (EEU), Economy Minister Nihat Zeybekci said Tuesday.

    "Minister of Economy of the Republic of Turkey Nihat Zeybekci… suggested intensifying cooperation of Turkey and EEU countries," the press service of Zeybekci’s Kazakh counterpart Erbolat Dossayev said in a statement after a meeting between the two ministers.
