The heads of government of Russia, Armenia, Uzbekistan, Kyrgyzstan and Moldova, the main coordinators of the EAEU and the CIS Executive Committee and representatives of other organisations attended the onsite meeting.

Askar Mamin said President of Kazakhstan Kassym-Zhomart Tokayev had sent the message to the leaders of EAEU Member States, specifying the key priorities for the period of Kazakhstan’s Chair of the EAEU.
