BISHKEK - The Eurasian Economic Union (EEU) is taking an active part in the Belt and Road Initiative, said an EEU official on Tuesday.

Nikishina Veronika Olegovna, a member of the EEU board on trade, made the remarks at an international forum on the Belt and Road Initiative held in Bishkek, the capital of Kyrgyzstan.

"We are making efforts with China through innovative cooperation to eliminate trade barriers between countries," said Olegovna.

Khristenko Viktor Borisovich, president of the EEU Business Council, said the close connection between the EEU and China will produce positive results in the near future.

A declaration was issued at the forum to promote collaboration between the Belt and Road Initiative and the EEU.

The EEU, which was formed in 2015, is an economic union of Armenia, Belarus, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan and Russia.

In 2015, Russian and Chinese leaders signed a joint statement on the interaction between the Silk Road Economic Belt and the EEU.
