Tokaev rejected Lukashenko's offer for Kazakhstan to become part of the state union of Russia and Belarus

Kazakh President Kasim-Jomart Tokayev said today that he rejected the offer of Belarusian President Alexander Lukashenko for Kazakhstan to join the State Union of Russia and Belarus.

- The President of the Republic of Belarus, Alexander Grigorevich Lukashenko, offered Kazakhstan to join the community of states. I appreciate his humor. I think there is no need for that because there are other integrative associations, first of all the Eurasian Economic Union (EAEU), Tokaev said.

He added that Kazakhstan does not need nuclear weapons if it is to accede to the Treaty on the Non-Proliferation of Nuclear Weapons, as well as to the Comprehensive Nuclear-Test-Ban Treaty.

– We remain faithful to our obligations towards these international instruments. I think that cooperation in this huge Eurasian region, or as it is now called Greater Eurasia, should develop in an economic direction, which we are all interested in. We must create a real common market, Tokaev pointed out.
