MOSCOW, April 03. /ITAR-TASS/. The Collective Security Treaty Organization (CSTO) is set to invigorate cooperation with China, Afghanistan and the Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO), CSTO Secretary General Nikolai Bordyuzha told journalists on Thursday after a meeting of the Council of CSTO Foreign Ministers.
The CSTO foreign ministers agreed it was “expedient to invigorate CSTO efforts to establish closer contacts with the Shanghai Cooperation Organization, to develop direct contacts with the Afghan leaders both at the central and border levels, to work more closely with China on concrete security issues that are of concern for both the Collective Security Treaty Organization and China,” Bordyuzha said.
“I think it expedient to establish contacts with other international organizations of the Asia Pacific region and other organizations specializing in security problems,” he noted. “The ministers agreed on the necessity of such measures and we shall implement them with due account of the situation around Russia and the CSTO zone of competence.
