DUSHANBE, June 4. /TASS/. Military of the CIS member-states and the Collective Security Treaty Organization (CSTO) state a growing complexity of the situation along the perimeter of their state borders, the Russian Deputy Minister of Defense, Anatoly Antonov, said on Thursday.
He said it in a comment on a session of the CIS Council of Defense Ministers that was held on June 3 in Kyrgyzstan, and the Council of Defense Ministers of the CSTO on June 4 in Dushanbe, the capital of Tajikistan.
"All the ministers stressed the importance of building up military collaboration in the format of both the CIS and the CSTO," he said.
"All the speakers who took the floor spoke with much concern about the situation along the perimeter of our borders and especially in the wake of the threat of terrorism," Antonov said.
Uzbekistan was the only member-state of the CSTO that was not represented at the ministerial meeting at the level.
