IZMIR  (Sputnik) – Turkey plans to sign a customs agreement with the Eurasian Economic Union (EAEU), Turkish Economy Minister Nihat Zeybekci (pictured) said Friday.

NihatZeybekci“We have a proposal for Turkey to begin negotiations with the Eurasian Economic Union on signing a customs agreement. Without violating a corresponding agreement with the EU, Turkey wants to establish another cooperation with the EAEU,” Zeybekci said at an international fair in Izmir.

Noting that 30-percent growth in trade between Russia and Turkey in 2016 was “just the beginning,” he said that the new free trade agreement would lead to a “new level of partnership.”
