YEREVAN, September 25. / ARKA /. A former Soviet republic of Kyrgyzstan has once again confirmed its intention to join the Russia-led Customs Union suggesting that a special fund be set up to show assistance to those countries that have expressed a similar desire, RBC reported.
"I would like to confirm the intention of the government of Kyrgyzstan to follow the path of integration in the Eurasian economic space and to continue the accession negotiations,» Kyrgyz prime minister Zhantoro Satybaldyev was quoted as saying during a visit to Kazakhstan.
According to him, integration processes in the Eurasian space have created broad prospects for economic development of Kyrgyzstan.
"Of particular importance is the question of establishing a mechanism to support countries which intend t++o join the Customs Union. It is no secret that per capita GDP in Kyrgyzstan is much more less than in the Customs Union. Such mechanisms exist in all integration alliances of the world ", he said. -0-
