Belarus urges to create common oil and gas market in Eurasian Economic Union

Belarus considers inadmissible red tape in the creation of a common market of oil and gas in the Eurasian Economic Union. The Prime Minister of Belarus announced the position of our country in Yerevan.

Heads of governments of the Eurasian Economic Union gathered in the Armenian capital on October 25. The creation of a single energy market by 2025 is the most sensitive issue.

Andrei Kobyakov urged the participants of the association not to delay this matter. The head of the Belarus government noted that the country incurs direct losses because of the ban on transit of sanctioned goods on the territory of Russia.

In this case, the Belarusian side proposes to create a control scheme which would allow distinguishing Belarusian and non-Belarusian products.

The meeting in Yerevan also discussed the situation in the sugar market, the introduction of Euro-5 environmental standards and the labeling of goods.
