Establishment of a free trade zone has not been discussed yet.

The Eurasian Economic Union (EAEU) plans to hold talks on possible trade and economic cooperation with Syria, but establishment of a free trade zone has not been discussed yet, EAEU Trade Minister Andrey Slepnev told reporters.

"It is probably not the right time to talks about stabilization. However, in the near future we plan to hold a number of meetings with Syrian representatives to discuss possible formats for the start of interaction between the union and Syria," he said.
