Belarus has signed the new Customs Code of the Eurasian Economic Union, Dmitry Nekrasov, head of the Department for Customs Legislation of the Eurasian Economic Commission, told reporters, TASS reports.
"Belarus signed the EEU Customs Code on April 11. The Commission has already received it and it will be published on our website soon," Nekrasov said on the sidelines of a conference on key foreign trade issues.
However, it does not mean that it has already come into force, since it is an international treaty so it should be ratified by all parties.
Spokesman of Belarusian Foreign Ministry Dmitriy Mironchik said last Thursday that Minsk might sign the Customs Code in the near future.
Belarus did not attend the presidential-level meeting of the Supreme Eurasian Economic Council, held in Saint Petersburg in December, when the Code was signed. Later, president of Belarus Lukashenko approved the draft document of the Customs Code as a basis for further talks and charged the State customs committee to negotiate its terms.
