MOSCOW, March 15 (Itar-Tass) —— Speaker of Russia’s State Duma Sergei Naryshkin may soon become head of the Collective Security Treaty Organisation’s Parliamentary Assembly, the Duma’s committee on the CIS and compatriots reported on Thursday.

The meeting behind closed doors also featured the CSTO’s Secretary General Nikolai Borduzha.

“Realising the importance of the CSTO, Sergei Naryshkin made a decision to nominate himself for the position of the CSTO Parliamentary Assembly’s speaker,” head of the State Duma’s committee Leonid Slutsky said. He promised that cooperation between the State Duma’s committee with the CSTO “will be very close and effective” on all key issues.

Slutsky said it would be necessary first of all to discuss issues of organisation of effective collective security forces, which is being implemented partially now.

“For example, CSTO’s peacekeepers have been participating in joint operations, including in those under the mandate of the United Nations Organisation,” he added.

Naryshkin may replace Boris Gryzlov in the position of head of the Parliamentary Assembly.
