Russian President Vladimir Putin says it is possible to create a free trade zone between the Eurasian Economic Union (EAEU) and the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN).

"I assume it is possible to create a free trade zone between the Eurasian Economic Union and ASEAN in the future," Putin said at a meeting of leaders of the Association’s member-states with representatives of the Russia-ASEAN business forum on Friday.

"Its launch could contribute to the formation of the Asian-Pacific free trade zone," he added.
