MOSCOW, September 9 (Itar-Tass) —— The Collective Security Treaty Organization (CSTO) will not interfere in internal affairs of its member states or act as a gendarme in the settlement of conflicts, CSTO Secretary General Nikolai Bordyuzha said on Friday.
“I strongly oppose any interference of the CSTO in internal affairs of sovereign states or acting as a gendarme. However, we will not keep silent if third states interfere in a conflict,” he said.
The use of the CSTO potential for the protection of the constitutional system by request of lawful authorities does not mean military operations, Bordyuzha said. “If we see that a country is on the brink of a disaster and peacekeepers start their mission by request of the national administration, the peacekeepers will primarily separate the warring sides. They will assist the local police to ensure law and order and to hold the disarmament process,” he said. “We have no other functions,” he added.
