MOSCOW, June 18. /TASS/. The Collective Security Treaty Organization (CSTO), a post-Soviet security bloc comprising Russia, Armenia, Belarus, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan and Tajikistan, has enough military and special forces to respond to all challenges and threats, CSTO Secretary General Nikolay Bordyuzha told reporters on Thursday.
"I think that the forces that are now consolidated within the framework of the CSTO are sufficient to respond to any challenges of any magnitude," he said.
Bordyuzha noted that the Collective Rapid Reaction Force (KSOR) was just the first reaction, this is the rapid deployment force, "but, in addition to these forces, we have aviation and other multi-functional potential."
