BISHKEK, October 10 (Itar-Tass) - The Collective Security Treaty Organization (CSTO) is following closely the processes going on in Afghanistan, CSTO Secretary General Nikolai Bordyuzha said at an international conference in the Kyrgyz capital on Thursday. The conference was devoted to the prospects of development of the situation in Afghanistan, challenges and threats to security in Central Asia in view of a withdrawal of the international security assistance force from the country in 2014.
In his words, the CSTO is studying the situation in Afghanistan over upcoming withdrawal of the main contingent of the international security assistance force from the country and is making forecasts on the issue. “We are preparing for negative consequences that may take place in Afghanistan,” Bordyuzha said. It was decided to help Tajikistan to reinforce the country’s state border to build up security of the CSTO states.
Representatives of the United Nations, the CSTO states and experts from several international organizations are participating in the conference in Bishkek.
