Belarus has ratified all documents concerning the Customs Union with Russia and Kazakhstan, Belarusian President Alexander Lukashenko said on Saturday.
"We have ratified all the treaties and agreements concerning the Customs Union. I must say that we did not lag behind... Russia or Kazakhstan in the Customs Union," he said.
The Customs Union formally came into existence on January 1, 2010. Russia and Kazakhstan have already ratified the customs code but Belarus dragged its feet on the ratification.
Two sources said on Wednesday that the Belarusian parliament had ratified the customs code but the official confirmation came only today.
