European Union welcome in new Russian-backed ‘Great Eurasian Partnership’, Moscow says… if Brussels sees value in turning to East

A new coalition of nations promoted by Russian President Vladimir Putin could run from Europe’s Atlantic coast to the Sea of Japan, after Moscow declared it would be open for any country across Eurasia that wants to participate.

Speaking to Pakistan’s News International network on Wednesday, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said that the grouping would be far from an exclusive club. Instead, “the initiative by President Putin to create a Greater Eurasian Partnership is all about putting unification on the agenda.”

Moscow’s top diplomat said that participation would be “open to all states of the continent,” including members of the Eurasian Economic Union, the Association of Southeast Asian Nations and, “provided they are interested, the European Union.”
