MOSCOW, December 23. /TASS/. The leaders of the Collective Security Treaty Organization countries — Russia, Armenia, Belarus, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan and Tajikistan — have adopted 22 documents following the summit meeting in the Kremlin on Tuesday. The CSTO heads of state approved of a joint statement, 19 resolutions and two protocols.
“In their joint statement the CSTO heads of state are to voice concern over the growing danger of terrorism and the spread of extremism in Central Asia, including the Afghan factor, and emphasized the need for restoring peace in Ukraine and achieving a peace settlement of the Nagorno-Karabakh problem. In other words, they will identify the common stance on the fundamental regional issues,” presidential aide Yury Ushakov said earlier about the proposed draft.
Among other documents Ushakov singled out the CSTO Council’s decision on checking the readiness of the CSTO collective rapid reaction force for coping with their routine tasks and missions, the CSTO Council’s resolutions on the collective air force, anti-drug strategy and plans for measures to implement guidelines for collective response to emergencies.
The CSTO Council adopted a resolution on the consultative and coordinating centre of the CSTO for response to computer incidents. One of the protocols concerns “resistance to criminal activities in the information sphere.” There are plans for carrying out the CSTO’s operation for resistance to crime in the sphere of information.
