Presidents Of Kazakhstan And Kyrgyzstan Not To Sign Agreement On Transit Tariff At CIS Summit
The presidents of Kazakhstan and the Kyrgyz Republic won’t sign an agreement on the transit tariff at the CIS summit, the deputy head of the President’s Office of the Kyrgyz Republic Sapar Isakov said today at a press conference.
According to him, the problems relate to the operation of Kyrgyzstan in the Eurasian Economic Union, are being discussed only in the framework of this organization. Decisions on them are being made in the framework of the Supreme Eurasian Economic Council.
“As for the bilateral relations between Kazakhstan and Kyrgyzstan on the transit tariff, there should be a decision of the intergovernmental council of our states. This solution is being worked out until now. It is not signed yet,” Sapar Isakov concluded.
At the meeting of Heads of Government of the EEU in Sochi (Russia) on August 13, the issue of the application of the unified railway tariff to Kyrgyzstan has already been raised. Then the Council of the Eurasian Economic Commission was of the opinion that the problem can be solved at the bilateral level by signing an agreement. It was planned that the document will be approved during the visit of Nursultan Nazarbayev to Bishkek for CIS summit.
