Mirziyoyev to attend EAEU Online Summit, Uzbekistan’s joining the organization as an observer state expected

President Shavkat Mirziyoyev will take part in the videoconference Summit of the Eurasian Economic Union (EAEU) on December 11.

The Summit will be chaired by Belarus.

The meeting will be attended by leaders of EAEU member states – Russia, Belarus, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan and Armenia, as well as of Moldova (observer nation), and Cuba (invited country), the presidential press service says.

One of the key issues on the agenda is granting Uzbekistan the status of an observer state in the organization.

In his speech, Mirziyoyev is expected to outline priority areas of mutually advantageous cooperation between Uzbekistan and the EAEU.

Earlier this year, in May, Oliy Majlis approved Uzbekistan’s participation in the activities of the Eurasian Economic Union as an observer state.
