ASTANA, May 29 (Itar-Tass) - The Eurasian Economic Union will work on universal and clear rules, including rules and principles adopted in the World Trade Organisation (WTO).

“The Eurasian Economic Union will work on universal transparent principles clear for all, including on WTO principles,” Russian President Vladimir Putin said at a meeting of the Supreme Eurasian Council at the level of the heads of state in Kazakhstan’s capital, Astana, on Thursday.

The Russian leader noted that “a treaty was fully prepared for signing.”

“This is a result of our joint work, close co-operation between the governments of Russia, Belarus and Kazakhstan,” Putin said.

He noted that thanks to a common constructive approach, readiness and ability of each party to find compromises the three countries succeeded to settle many difficulties on this path and sign the document timely as it was planned before June 1, 2014.
