Prospects for cooperation between BRICS and the EAEU

At a meeting with Chairman of the Eurasian Economic Commission Bakytzhan Sagintaev, President of the Russian Federation Vladimir Putin suggested that the Eurasian Economic Union countries should work on the issue of participation of the EAEU countries in projects of the BRICS interstate association implemented jointly with Russia.

Putin noted that BRICS and the EAEU can jointly develop in many promising areas, including the financial sphere.

The EAEU includes many countries that are not yet members of the BRICS interstate association, but joint projects can develop the potential of the states.
