Syrian Prime Minister announced Syria’s desire to join the Eurasian Economic Union

32
The chairman of the Syrian government, Vail Al Khalki, has recently announced that negotiations are underway between the authorities of the Syrian Arab Republic and the authorities of the countries belonging to the EEU about the entry of the Syrian state into the Eurasian Economic Union. Al-Khalki noted that this would simplify the system of trade relations between the countries, and also give an additional impetus to increase trade.

Syrian Prime Minister announced Syria’s desire to join the Eurasian Economic Union


RIA News quoted the words of the prime minister of Syria:

We see in this the benefit and strengthening of relations with friendly states, which will facilitate economic and trade interaction with them.


According to al-Khalki, Damascus and Moscow have already signed an agreement on the construction and operation of gas processing plants, as well as on the creation of irrigation systems. In addition, Russian companies were able to run an oil business on the Syrian coast.

According to experts, the possible entry of Syria into the EAEU is not only economic advantages for both the Eurasian Economic Union and Syria, but also certain changes in the Syrian security system. However, it is precisely the issues of the spread of international terrorists fed by the West on the territory of Syria that raises the most questions about the possible integration of this country into the EEU.

            Tunisia (Tunisian authorities have expressed a desire to create a free trade zone with the Eurasian Economic Union) [8]
            Syria (membership is not yet considered, but the creation of a free trade zone is possible) [9]

            I have nothing against Syria, but at such a pace: Egypt, Libya, Iraq, other countries subjected to the export of "democracy"; as well as the Gas Sector, Afghanistan (again asks for help), and Somalia (up to a heap).

          Or maybe the other way around - it will help the FSA to rekindle confrontations among the countries of the Eurasian Economic Community even more! Indeed, not all countries of this union are friendly to Syria! Or maybe this will lead to rapprochement and the solution of problems of mutual understanding between the countries of the union!
          Time will tell! Of course, I hope for the best!

        I don’t think. The EAEU is not a military organization. The Syrian economy now needs support, but no one will help except the EAEU.No one.
        I believe this is not a statement from the evil one, but the last hope to create a more or less solid economic foundation, without which Syria will not be able to resist for a long time in the conditions of war.

          Well, in general, Russia and Iran help.
          But what about the EAEU? Who is stopping now the same Kazakhstan and Belarus to help Syria?
          So if they don’t do it now and haven’t done it before - why will they be part of the EAEU?
          I think with or without the EAEU - only Russia will help Syria

      And the treaty of friendship and mutual assistance with the Syrian Arab Republic and Russia, interestingly, exists? After all, if such an agreement exists, then articles were necessarily written in the event of military aggression against one of the signatory parties, the other side is obliged to provide all kinds of assistance, including military assistance to the side subjected to aggression.
      This is to ensure that D. Cameron - the British submarine, does not threaten to use military force against Syria, knowing that he will receive an adequate response immediately!

        England did not need this, the main push against Syria was France. Syria has always been influenced by France and its sphere of influence.

      Well, right.
      The geopolitical significance of Syria for Russia is largely due to the presence of our only access to the Mediterranean Sea. In the Syrian port of Tartus is the only military base in Russia, outside the former USSR. This object has been at the disposal of our country since 1971. Some critics of Russia draw attention to the fact that “the ships deployed there are old and in very poor condition,” and the port itself is very dilapidated. However, right now, active repair and restoration work is being carried out there in order to significantly expand the capabilities of the station next year.
      Russia also has an economic interest in Syria. In 2010, the volume of Russian exports to Syria amounted to 1,1 billion dollars. Investments in the country exceed $ 20 billion, mainly due to the export of Russian weapons.
      According to a recent SIPRI report, Syria is one of the most active buyers of weapons in foreign markets. Between 2007 and 2011, Damascus increased arms purchases by 580%. At the same time, most of the arms imports to Syria are provided by Russia (72%).
      Syria is pleased to buy from us Mig-29 fighters, Yak-130 combat trainers, the Pantsir and Buk air defense systems, the Bastion coastal systems, and the Yakhont P-800 anti-ship missiles. According to some reports, part of this weapon is being transported from Syria to Iran.

        it’s difficult, or rather it’s impossible to call it investment — it’s military assistance, so in general you can forget about money, Syria is not in a situation to repay debts

      I would beware of such a membership. I will explain. Our union provides for the free movement of capital, services and labor between its members. But what kind of entry of warring Syria can we talk about? After all, then refugees will pour in to us. But Islamists will come under the guise of refugees. And this is already unacceptable. Now the Union includes countries whose citizens have a common History, common traditions and a very similar mentality. And therefore, the Union does not have big opponents within its members and general plans and laws find support more easily. It is from such countries that such a UNION must be created and expanded. So far within the former USSR. And for other countries to provide the status of the Free Trade Zone. It is unlikely that we would want to open the doors to our house for bandits and killers.
