MOSCOW, June 16, 19:31 /ITAR-TASS/. Sergei Naryshkin, the speaker of the State Duma, the lower house of Russia’s parliament, called on lawmakers from the Collective Security Treaty Organisation (CSTO) member-states to support Russia’s proposal on setting up a contact group on Ukraine in the Parliamentary Assembly of the Organisation for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE PA).

“On April 17 at a meeting of the Council of the CSTO Parliamentary Assembly, we formulated recommendations on coordination of our actions on key international issues, including global problems, that are discussed at various platforms of international parliamentary organisations,” Naryshkin said at a meeting with leaders of CSTO parliamentary delegations in the OSCE PA on Monday.

“Today we are to speak about our stances on such complicated international issues as the situation in Syria, Afghanistan and now in Iraq as well as in Ukraine in the run-up to the forthcoming session of the OSCE Parliamentary Assembly in Baku (Azerbaijan’s capital) on June 28,” he said.

On May 13, the State Duma adopted an address to the parliaments of other countries and international parliamentary organisations warning them about the threat of a humanitarian catastrophe in Ukraine and suggesting to set up an international parliamentary contact group on Ukraine on the basis of the OSCE PA platform, Naryshkin said.

“I would like to hope for our joint stance on this proposal of the State Duma,” he said.

“I quite understand that our countries’ positions on Ukraine, on the deep crisis that has gripped the brotherly nation, could differ in some details,” he said adding that “we are surely united in our joint willingess to help the Ukrainian people overcome this deepest crisis and restore peace, law and order in Ukraine.”

The CSTO comprises six countries - Russia, Belarus, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan and Armenia.
