"Russia is our largest neighbor and our economies are linked to each other," - said E.Karin.
Commenting on the question of what positive contribution could Azerbaijan bring to the Union, in case of joining the EAEC, E.Karin said that Azerbaijan has a strong economy, and plays a major role in the transport sector: "If Azerbaijan joined the Union, this would increase the size of the organization".
E.Karin also raised the issue of Armenia's membership in the EAEC: "Kazakhstan believes that the more countries will participate in the project, the better and more effective will be the integration. However, the country must be prepared for this integration.To this end, we have set goals to candidate countries. At the moment, Kyrgyzstan is much ready to join the Union, rather than Armenia".
