The EAEU and Iran have signed a temporary agreement to establish a free trade zone during an economic forum in Astana.
Iran and the Eurasian Economic Union (EAEU) signed a provisional pact on Thursday to create a free trade zone, the chair of the board of the EAEU's economic commission, said.
"The temporary agreement stipulates an effective dispute settlement mechanism, including arbitration … It also creates a joint committee of high-ranking officials and establishes a business dialogue," Tigran Sargsyan said at a ceremony in Astana, Kazakhstan.
It is the first step in streamlining trade between the Islamic republic and the five-nation bloc, which includes Armenia, Belarus, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan and Russia.
