Tashkent, Uzbekistan (UzDaily.com) --
Uzbekistan is to suspend its membership in the Eurasian Economic Community (EurAsEC) due to its allegedly poor efficiency, Russian media reported Wednesday.
"Tashkent has long been saying that this organization is not efficient enough," Interfax news agency quoted a Moscow-based diplomatic source as saying.
Uzbekistan joined the regional economic body in 2006, which also includes Russia, Belarus, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan and Tajikistan.
The Moscow-led international organization will not get "nervous" about this but treat Uzbekistan’s decision calmly, according to the diplomat.
