MOSCOW, April 13 (Itar-Tass) —— Member states of the Collective Security Treaty Organization (CSTO) have called impermissible economic pressure on Belarus. The CSTO foreign ministers issued a statement to the effect.
“The CSTO foreign ministers declared the impermissibility of economic pressure or compulsion in inter-state relations with regard to the EU economic restrictions on the Republic of Belarus,” the organization said.
“Such measures infringe lawful interests of economic security of states, which is fraught with damage to mutually beneficial cooperation and to the development of integration processes on the Eurasian continent and undermines mutual confidence, which may eventually have a negative impact on regional stability and security,” it said.
The foreign ministers of Armenia, Belarus, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Russia and Tajikistan are confident that “only an equal dialog will promote the settlement of international disagreements.” The ministers call for abstaining from any actions “which disagree with the spirit and principles of neighborliness and mutual respect,” the organization said.
