MINSK, August 30 (Itar-Tass) — Secretary-general of the Collective Security Treaty Organization, Nikolai Bordyuzha, will meet on Tuesday with the chairman of the CSTO Collective Security Council, Belarussian President Alexander Lukashenko to discuss counteraction to extremist and terrorist groups in the CSTO area of responsibility.
“During his working visit to Belarus the CSTO secretary-general will focus on efforts to upgrade the organization’s activity, priorities of counteraction to extremist and terrorist organizations and stronger potential of the collective rapid reaction forces,” CSTO spokesman Vladimir Zainetdinov said.
The meeting will also consider the implementation of agreements reached at the CSTO informal summit that took place in Astana on August 12.
“We unambiguously announced that this year we will take steps to strengthen the organization’s role. We will make a significant breakthrough and are fully determined to complete the CSTO forces’ recruitment and re-equipment,” President Alexander Lukashenko said at the summit noting that the CSTO has many areas of actions following recent events in the world, including those in the Middle East and Africa.
The summit in Astana stressed the need for drafting a comprehensive document that will reflect directions of the organization’s development. This document will be prepared for the CSTO summit due in December. Special attention was paid to a treaty on the creation of the collective rapid reaction forces.
