MOSCOW, August 31. /TASS/. Collective Security Treaty Organization (CSTO) Secretary General Nikolay Bordyuzha has noted Tajikistan’s efforts in strengthening and protecting its border with Afghanistan where the situation is deteriorating.
"The efficiency [of assistance to Tajikistan] is needed because of the current situation. It is very unfavorable. The considerable part of the territory is controlled by the Taliban," Bordyuzha said.
Partners should boost their aid since Tajikistan is the major stronghold on the way of penetrating Central Asia, he continued. "I am confident that this aid will be increased. Such measures are taken. Works are underway to provide aid from Russian Armed Forces and other partners," the secretary general noted.
At the moment, Tajikistan receives aid in border troops training, preparation of military units, and equipment. Joint operations are held together with Russia’s Federal Drug Control Service, Federal Migration Service and border control service. "All this works for strengthening security," Bordyuzha said.
He also noted Tajikistan’s efforts on strengthening the border. "Tajikistan’s authorities have made extraordinary steps over the last several months to strengthen border control troops and all border control infrastructure in general on the Tajik-Afghan border," he stressed. Several large-scale security drills were also held in the country with the participation of civilians.
"Tajikistan is doing a lot to prevent further deterioration of the situation in Central Asia," he concluded.
