Mercosur wants to expand cooperation with Eurasian Economic Union

Argentine Ambassador to Russia Pablo Anselmo Tettamanti says the Eurasian Economic Union (EEU) is an important partner for Argentina, and Mercosur wants to continue developing cooperation with their Eurasian partners. He also added that Russia is discussing new investment opportunities with Argentina.

Mercosur countries see the Eurasian Economic Union (EEU) as an important partner and will continue to develop cooperation with it, Argentine Ambassador to Russia Pablo Anselmo Tettamanti told RIA Novosti.

According to the ambassador, Argentina facilitated significant progress in reaching an agreement between Mercosur and the Eurasian Economic Union in the last six months of 2014. A number of meetings held in Moscow and Buenos Aires have led to the creation of a draft cooperation agreement in the economic and trade spheres between the two regional trading blocs.

“The EEU is an important partner for us and we are certain that Mercosur will continue along the line of cooperation development. A memorandum on mutual understanding will allow us to sit down and discuss in more detail what exactly we want to achieve,” Tettamanti told RIA Novosti.
