MOSCOW, January 22. /TASS/. Tajikistan’s representative at the Collective Security Treaty Organization (CSTO), Badriddin Mirzoyev, has been elected new chairman of the CSTO Permanent Council, CSTO Spokesman Vladimir Zainetdinov told TASS on Thursday.
The CSTO Permanent Council held its first meeting in 2015 on Thursday.
