SOCHI, September 23 (Itar-Tass) - Member-states of the Collective Security Treaty Organisation should not be caught off balance irrespective of how the situation in Afghanistan develops after the withdrawal of the International Security Assistance Force in 2014, Russian President Vladimir Putin told a narrow format meeting within the framework of the CSTO summit in Russia’s Black Sea resort of Sochi on Monday.
He said antiterrorist efforts would become especially important when the NATO-led forces would be pulled out from the Central Asian country.
“The development of the situation under any scenario should not catch us off balance,” Putin said expressing the hope that in this very context CSTO summit delegates would discuss the strengthening of the Tajik-Afghan border.
