MOSCOW, February 15 (Itar-Tass) —— The main alteration to the Charter of the Collective Security Treaty Organisation (CSTO) allows its Collective Security Council to adopt decisions in a limited format, First Deputy Foreign Minister Andrei Denisov said.
Now “only the interested states can make a decision, provided none of them objects”, he said. “The state that does not support a decision will be relieved from responsibility for its use. This will make it impossible for one state to block a decision adopted by the whole organisation.”
Denisov has been appointed by President Dmitry Medvedev to be his official representative during the debates on amendments to the CSTO Charter in the both houses of the Russian parliament. He attended the debates in the State Duma on Wednesday, February 15.
When asked about interaction between the CSTO and NATO, Denisov said, “The alliance does not recognise the CSTO because this organisation can make Russia stronger”.
At the same time, he stressed that “we have possibilities for cooperation with NATO”.
