The leaders will also discuss future working plans for the next phase of the integration in the Eurasian region -- to create a Eurasian Economic Union, which was first initiated by Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin in October and includes former Soviet states.
Meanwhile, the leaders will exchange views on issues related to the Customs Union between Russia, Belarus and Kazakhstan and the relevant cooperation among the three countries.
