Kazakhstan began negotiations with the United Arab Emirates (UAE) to establish a free trade zone, said President Kassym-Jomart Tokayev at a meeting of the Supreme Eurasian Economic Council in Bishkek, QazMonitor reports.

"I think this initiative is very promising and corresponds to the interests of the entire Eurasian Five. It is important not to delay this process," Tokayev said in his speech.

According to the President, our country is focusing on improving the quality of interactions with partners with whom we have preferential agreements – which are Vietnam, Serbia, and Iran.

He also stressed the importance of speeding up work on free trade zone agreements with India, Egypt, Indonesia, and Israel.
