"EAEU Member States are bolstering trade, economic, investment and humanitarian ties. Cross-border and interregional cooperation development is on the rise, ambitious joint projects are being implemented in various areas, and interaction with other multilateral organizations of the continent is being established," said Vladimir Putin.
The Russian President emphasized the importance of the fact that integration processes within the EAEU framework provide additional opportunities for strengthening the strategic partnership and alliance between Russia and Kazakhstan for the benefit of the two nations.
"I am sure that you will hold interesting, significant discussions, and the proposals and initiatives elaborated during the conference will further strengthen the EAEU. I wish you success and all the best," Vladimir Putin concluded.
