Lukashenko warned EAEU countries against excessive enthusiasm for strategic planning

Belarus supports the need initiated within the framework of the Russian chairmanship to determine approaches to the formation of a new strategy of Eurasian integration development until 2030, and somewhere up to 2045. At the same time – as noted by President Aleksandr Lukashenko – it is necessary to avoid excessive enthusiasm about strategic planning.

Speaking at the Supreme Eurasian Economic Council meeting in Moscow, the Belarusian leader stressed that the experience of implementing some initiatives at the level of the Belarus-Russia Union State may be of interest when preparing relevant strategic documents of the EAEU.

"At the same time, I would like to warn all of us against getting too carried away with strategic planning," Aleksandr Lukashenko noted. “At least, this useful work should not cancel or replace practical activities dealing with the implementation of the goals and objectives of the EAEU Treaty that are being conducted by the member states and the Commission right now,” Aleksandr Lukashenko said.

Summing up his speech, the President of Belarus noted, “In general, there are a lot of specific issues that need to be removed. They are on the surface. I am convinced that – through our joint efforts – we will be able to fully realise the potential of our Union both inside it and on the external boundary. In this way, we will be able to create one of the full-fledged, responsible centres of the new, multipolar world.”
