MOSCOW, September 12 (Itar-Tass) - Russian President Vladimir Putin will receive the leaders of the member-countries of the Collective Security Treaty Organization (CSTO) in Sochi at the end of this month, Russian presidential aide Yuri Ushakov told reporters on Thursday.
“A CSTO summit will be held in Sochi on September 23,” he said, adding: “We are preparing to hold it.”
CSTO is open for cooperation with other organizations, including NATO, visiting Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said in Astana earlier on Thursday.
“This particularly concerns issues related with Afghanistan,” Lavrov said in a lecture, which he gives at the Eurasian University in Astana.
“We are interested to pool efforts in the struggle against Afghan drug threat. The suppression of illegal drug circulation is also a serious contribution in the struggle against international terrorism,” he added.
