"For the first time in history, the Customs Union of Kazakhstan, Russia and Belarus brings our nations together on the basis of mutual respect, preservation of national identity and awareness of our common future's continuity.

A consistent transformation of the Customs Union into the Single Economic Space, and later on—into the Eurasian Economic Union will become a great impetus for our nations' prosperity. It will take our countries to leading positions in the world.

We are all witnessing the birth of a new unique Eurasian community of nations that has both extensive experience of the common past and an indivisible joint future."

"For Belarus, a deep productive integration with the closest neighbors has been, is and will always be a natural path of the development. Two referendums—with an absolute majority—gave the authorities a clear mandate for integration.

The best practices of integration within the Union State allow for their reasonable and confident application in a wider multilateral format. It is important for the Union State, Customs Union and Single Economic Space to enrich and complement one another.

Today we are coming to the implementation of the decisions conventionally called momentous. Our determination to enhance integration is not accidental. It's a manifest coming from life."
