Russia supports Kyrgyzstan’s aspirations to join the Customs Union of Russia, Belarus and Kazakhstan, Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev said on Tuesday.

“Russia’s invariable position is that Kyrgyzstan should become a member of the Customs Union,” Medvedev said at a meeting with his Kyrgyz counterpart Omurbek Babanov.

Kyrgyzstan should use integration process roadmaps, coordinating its efforts with Belarus and Kazakhstan, and “study as quickly as possible a set of treaties for accession to the Customs Union,” Medvedev added.

“We have filed an application to join the Customs Union and a group of experts is currently at work. The path has been chosen and it is only a matter of time,” Babanov said.

In November 2011, the Russian, Belarusian and Kazakh presidents signed a declaration on Eurasian economic integration, aimed at eventually creating the Eurasian Economic Union, which will be based on the Customs Union and common economic space among the three countries.
