Lukashenko: Fledgling EEU must forbid trade wars

Belarus President Alexander Lukashenko said Belarus won't tolerate any trade wars as a member of the Eurasion Economic Union.

Belarus President Alexander Lukashenko said Thursday that trade wars must be prohibited under the charter of the Eurasian Economic Union (EEU).

Lukashenko cited recent milk, meat and candy wars between Russia and Belarus as examples of what should not be tolerated under the new organization.

“Some things should not have happened after these documents (on establishing the Eurasian Economic Union) were signed," Lukashenko said. These wars, they should not have happened. I had to deal with these issues at the top level a short while ago."

Lukashenko also said the EEU was founded on purely economic terms and that he is not opposed to Belarus leaving the union if it were to become a political lever, a Silk Road Reporters story said.
