ST. PETERSBURG, December 6. /TASS/. Russian President Vladimir Putin has suggested that Eurasian Economic Union (EAEU) member-states should consider the idea of creating common payment infrastructure.

“We suggest that the issue of creating common payment infrastructure using up-to-date financial technologies in EAEU should be developed,” he said at the opening of the meeting of the Supreme Eurasian Economic Council on Thursday.

According to President, “that would enhance sustainability of national payment systems of (EAEU) countries by making them less dependent on the dollar and other foreign currencies.”

“That in a strict sense means raising economic sovereignty,” he added.
