MOSCOW, February 21 (Itar-Tass) —— The Collective Security Treaty Organization is against a military attack on Iran, because if that happens, everyone will be stunned, CSTO Secretary-General Nikolai Bordyuzha told a news conference in Moscow on Tuesday.
“The CSTO member-countries’ position over a hypothetical US attack against Iran is united. There should be no strikes,” Bordyuzha said. “If that happens, everybody will be stunned from different points of view. And in case of an attack against Iran’s nuclear facilities we shall get another Chernobyl.”
Bordyuzha said the CSTO was taking steps to forestall a likely exodus of refugees from the region.
“So far such steps have not been very active, because we still do hope that an attack on Iran will not happen,” Bordyuzha said.
“Russia’s position on the issue has been identified,” he recalled. “It is confined to conducting negotiations using the IAEA resources. The agency is to check on Teheran’s statements regarding the civilian thrust of its nuclear program.”
