Discussion covered the implementation of the Main Directions of the EAEU International Activities in 2023. The number of the Union's partners increased: memorandums of understanding were signed with the governments of Myanmar and Nicaragua, and a full-scale trade agreement was concluded with Iran.

The leaders of the Eurasian Economic Union countries supported the proposal to initiate formal negotiations on concluding an interim trade agreement with Mongolia .

In addition, the draft Protocol on Electronic Exchange of Information on the Origin of Goods with Vietnam was approved.
