MINSK, November 20. /TASS/. The situation on western borders of the Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS) will be in the focus of discussion of the CIS Border Guard Commander Council meeting in Minsk this Thursday.
The border guard chiefs will discuss the situation in the region and cooperation to ensure security, a CIS Executive Committee source told TASS.
The press secretary of the Belarusian State Border Guard Committee, Alexander Tishchenko, told TASS that “the Belarusian frontier factually was the only reliable security border in the space between Lisbon and Vladivostok.”
“We have least problems on the border with neighboring states. To prevent a conflict situation and to solve problems in cooperation with neighboring states is experience that other CIS countries need,” he said.
The council of commanders was set up in 1992 to coordinate operation of border guard troops. The head of the council is Russian border guard chief Vladimir Kulishov.
