Mikhail Mishustin who recently took up the post of head of the Russian government, will soon make his first foreign trip in a new capacity. On January 31, the Prime Minister will visit Kazakhstan, where he will take part in a meeting of the Eurasian intergovernmental Council, News.ru reports. 

It is expected that during the meeting of the Council, its members will discuss, in particular, the transition to settlement in the national currencies of the member states of the Eurasian Economic Union (EEU) and further integration within the Association.

It is significant that a few days before his visit to Kazakhstan, Mishustin held a meeting on priority tasks within the framework of the Eurasian economic integration. As noted on the website of the Russian government, the participants of the meeting made "concrete decisions to intensify interdepartmental interaction to promote the priorities of the Russian Federation in the Eurasian Economic Union".

At the moment, the EEU, in addition to Russia, includes Armenia, Belarus, Kazakhstan and Kyrgyzstan (as well as Moldova as an observer). Uzbekistan, whose leadership has repeatedly stated its interest in the possibility of joining the Union, may join the Association as an observer soon.
