DUSHANBE, October 8 (Itar-Tass) - Member countries of the Collective Security Treaty Organization will provide assistance to Tajik border guard troops in the next three months, CSTO head Nikolai Bordyuzha said to Tajik President Emomali Rakhmon during their meeting on Monday, the presidential press service said.
The CSTO secretary-general is in Dushanbe as a member of the Russian delegation headed by State Duma Speaker Sergei Naryshkin.
The meeting focused on the implementation of the documents signed at the last CSTO summit in Sochi on September 23, the press service said, adding that an agreement was reached to provide immediate technical assistance to the border guard forces and other structures of Tajikistan to strengthen security on the Tajik-Afghan border. The implementation of the documents will help consolidate stability in the entire region in the situation when NATO forces are planned to be withdrawn from Afghanistan in 2014.
Bordyuzha, who was in Tajikistan on a working visit in late August, described the situation on the Tajik-Afghan border as complicated and said it required additional up-to-date technical guard and protection equipment.
The Collective Security Treaty Organization unites Armenia, Belarus, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Russia and Tajikistan.
