MOSCOW, December 04. /ITAR-TASS/. Foreign ministers of the Collective Security Treaty Organisation will gather for an informal meeting in Ukraine’s capital, Kiev, which will host the ministerial meeting of the Organisation for Security and Cooperation in Europe on December 5, CSTO spokesman Vladimir Zainetdinov said on Wednesday.
“Taking part in the meeting will be CSTO Secretary General Nikolai Bordyuzha,” he said. “At the OSCE invitation he will also participate in the ministerial meeting of that organisation.”
The informal meeting of foreign ministers will be rather helpful “for exchange of opinions on how member-states regard dialogue with the OSCE, coordination of approaches to stronger cooperation with the organisation and elaboration of guidelines for further interaction,” Zainetdinov said.
“The Organisation for Security and Cooperation in Europe develops rather successful cooperation with the Collective Security Treaty Organisation,” he said. “Contacts with heads of key departments, field missions, in particular in Central Asian countries, are developing.”
In November, chiefs of the two organizations, Nikolai Bordyuzha and Lamberto Zannier, met to discuss problems Afghanistan was facing after the withdrawal of the NATO-led International Security Assistance Force.
