DUSHANBE, June 4. /TASS/. A number of significant measures, including on upgrading the military-technical policy, will be taken following meeting of the Council of Defense Ministers of the Collective Security Treaty Organization (CSTO) held earlier on Thursday in Dushanbe, CSTO Secretary General Nikolay Bordyuzha told reporters.
"This concerns, above all, upgrading the organization’s legal framework and legislations of CSTO member-countries, especially in the light of issues we encountered during the transfer of the CSTO Collective Rapid Reaction Force to Tajikistan," Bordyuzha said after the meeting.
In addition to that, some aspects of the military-technical policy conducted by the organization’s members will be updated as well. He didn’t specify what these changes would imply.
The CSTO Secretary General noted that prior to the meeting the defence ministers had been received by Tajikistan’s President Emomali Rahmon, adding that the meeting "grew into a very serious discussion of the situation in the Central Asian region, the challenges faced by Tajikistan and other regional countries and the processes under way in Afghanistan."
According to Bordyuzha, the participants in the meeting came up with a number of proposals relating to the changing situation on the border, its deterioration and extremist activities. These proposals, coupled with the ones made during the meeting of the Council of Defense Ministers, "will be taken into consideration, serious conclusions will be drawn and concrete steps taken," Bordyuzha said.
