"We considered the Moldova application to get the EAEU observer status in the narrow circle. The EAEU Supreme Council took the decision in the narrow circle to welcome and support the Moldovan intention to get the EAEU observer status," Atambayev said at the EAEU Supreme Council meeting.
According to Atambayev, the Council will present the order to implement the Moldovan observer status at the next meeting.
The EAEU, comprising Russia, Armenia, Belarus, Kazakhstan and Kyrgyzstan, is an international organization that encourages regional economic integration through the free movement of goods, services, and people within the union.
In March, Moldovan President Igor Dodon signed a memorandum of cooperation with the EAEU. During the talks with Putin in January, Dodon expressed interest in Moldova participating in the EAEU as an observer. He stressed that Moldovan-EU Association Agreement had failed to meet the expectations and led to the loss of the country's share on the Russian market and the drop in exports volume to the European Union.
