MOSCOW (Sputnik) — On May 19, Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Igor Morgulov said Singapore, Indonesia, Cambodia, and Thailand expressed interest in creating a free trade zone with the EEU.
"Actually, there’s been an intent discussion in Indonesia… There’s been a discussion on how we could proceed with either Eurasian Economic community [on setting up a free trade zone] or ASEAN, with AEC. The spirit after ASEAN summit is there, that’s why the next step is a plan of action to make it more concrete," Supriyadi said.
He added that it was only a matter of time for Jakarta to channel this intention through respective ways.
The EEU is an international organization for economic integration launched in 2015, with Armenia, Belarus, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan and Russia as its member states.
