Dacic said during a visit to the Russia city of Suzdal on November 3 that Serbia has "free-trade-zone agreements with certain EAEU members, but they differ", according to RFE/RL citing TASS and Serbian media.

He added that Belgrade is now planning to sign a common agreement good for all members of the EAEU.

Dacic said his government would work to find a "unification with all of these [separate] agreements [with individual EAEU members]".
