Russia and Kazakhstan need verified decisions on the crisis

It is necessary for Russia and Kazakhstan to take adequate decisions that will help overcome the crisis, Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev said at a meeting with his Kazakh counterpart Karim Massimov in Sochi, "Interfax" reports.

He noted that the economies of both countries experience "not the easiest period".

"We have to monitor very attentively the processes that occur. Given the fact that our economies are closely interconnected, it is necessary to take adequate decisions that will help overcome problems, reduce the impact of the crisis, to mitigate the negative economic processes and to solve the challenges which our states are facing," Medvedev said.

During the meeting, he also proposed Massimov to discuss preparations for the meeting of the Intergovernmental Council of the Eurasian Economic Union.

"There is a number of issues, on which we need to agree with the view of the fact that at the moment the Eurasian Union consists of five countries," the head of the Russian government said.

Prime Minister of Kazakhstan, in his turn, noted that it is very important to place the correct accents.

"Now in Kazakhstan, just like in Russia, we conduct the correction of the economic course due to changed conjuncture in the world markets. I think that our conversation will help to correct accents," Massimov said.
