MOSCOW, May 17 (Itar-Tass) - Member countries of the Collective Security Treaty Organization (CSTO) will offer all possible help to Tajikistan to ensure security at its borders after the withdrawal of the International Security Assistance Force (ISAF) from Afghanistan, CSTO secretary general Nikolai Bordyuzha told journalists on Friday.
“Tajikistan has its own well-developed border service. There are no ground to deploy Russian border guards to this region,” he noted.
According to Bordyuzha, mountainous terrain complicates the mission of ensuring security at the Tajik-Afghan border, which can be “easily trespassed.” “We are coordinating our efforts with Tajikistan, offering assistance in logistics and weapons supplies, and personnel training,” he stressed.
