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. The meeting was attended by CSTO Secretary General Nikolay Bordyuzha and Chief of United Staff of the organization Alexander Studenikin. “In view of Tajikistan’s taking over presidency in the Collective Security Treaty Organization in 2015, the Permanent Council reelected its chairman,” Zainetdinov said.
Apart from that, the Council discussed a project for the development of the institution of partnership in the area of military economic cooperation within the CSTO. The agenda also included draft resolutions of the CSTO Defense Ministers’ Council on enhancing the role of military educational institutions and research organizations in training CSTO military personnel and on measures to improve personnel training and ensure better coordination between military training and research institutions of the CSTO member countries. The Council decided to refer these documents to the governments of member states.
