MOSCOW, February 21 (Itar-Tass) —— The Collective Security Treaty Organization (CSTO) is developing some measures of border reinforcement  if the situation in Afghanistan deteriorates, CSTO General Secretary Nikolai Bordyuzha said at a press conference here on Tuesday.

He is concerned that after the withdrawal of the US troops from Afghanistan the situation in the country will continue to deteriorate. “The presidents of the CSTO states gave instructions to reinforce the borders. We are working out what steps will be taken in case of a worsening situation in Afghanistan,” Bordyuzha said.

The CSTO secretary general noted that the Afghan situation is the main negative factor for the regional situation.
