MOSCOW, May 25. /TASS/. The leaders of the countries of the Eurasian Economic Union (EAEU) started a meeting in the Kremlin. The EAEU summit opened on Thursday with a photo session of the presidents of Russia, Belarus, Kazakhstan, and Kyrgyzstan Vladimir Putin, Alexander Lukashenko, Kassym-Jomart Tokayev, and Sadyr Japarov, as well as Armenian Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan.

The EAEU leaders started communicating on Wednesday at the Eurasian Economic Forum, which was set to be held every year. Russia’s President Vladimir Putin stated that decisions on further deepening integration processes between the countries would be made at today's meeting.
