In Minsk President Serzh Sargsyan participated in the works of the Interstate Council of the Eurasian Economic Community (EvrAzEs). In this organization Armenia has observer status. The session of the Interstate Council of the Eurasian Economic Community was also attended by the Presidents of the Russian Federation, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Belarus, and Tajikistan. The Heads of State first conducted negotiations in a closed format and later were joined by their delegations.
The agenda of the meeting comprised nearly two dozen issues, including the implementation of the decisions adopted at the previous sessions of the Council, creation of a common economic realm and customs union on the territory of the EvrAzEs, as well as issues related to the joint efforts to overcome the consequences of the global economic and financial crisis.
At the session held on February 4, 2009, the Interstate Council adopted two decisions: “On the establishment of the Anti-crisis Fund of the EvrAzEs” and “On the establishment of the EvrAzEs Center of High technologies”.
Armenia is a co-founder of the Anti-crisis Fund and High-tech Center, and the National Assembly of the Republic of Armenia has already ratified documents pertinent to these two decisions. Documents related to the establishment of the Anti-crisis center are currently undergoing the final stage of the process of internal verification and at its conclusion the Center will start to function. After the meeting in the extended format, the Heads of State signed documents related to the adopted decisions, including those related to the creation of the Customs Union of the Russian Federation, Belarus and Kazakhstan.
In Minsk, the President of Armenia also participated in the international Connect CIS Summit aimed at the development of information technologies.
The delegation headed by President Serzh Sargsyan will return to Yerevan today late at night.
