- Story Text:Serbian Prime Minister Ana Brnabic signed a free trade agreement with the Eurasian Economic Union (EAEU) on Friday (October 25).
The agreement will expand economic ties of the country with the five ex-Soviet EEU members - Russia, Belarus, Kazakhstan, Armenia and Kyrgyzstan.
Brnabic, chairman of board of the Eurasian Economic Commission Tigran Sargsyan and prime ministers of the EAEU countries, including Russia's Dmitry Medvedev, put their names to the document.
Medvedev had visited Serbia on October 19 to meet President Aleksandar Vucic and mark the 75th anniversary of Red Army's liberation of Belgrade. Following his visit, Russia and Serbia had signed a number of documents for cooperation in various fields.
In August, the European Commission warned that Serbia would have to withdraw from all existing bilateral free trade agreements before joining the European Union.
