GENEVA, June 29. /TASS/. The Collective Security Treaty Organization (CSTO) has no plans to take part in the antiterrorism operation in Syria, CSTO Deputy Secretary General Valery Semerikov told reporters on Wednesday after a coordinating meeting with representatives of the International Red Cross Committee.
"Our stance remained unchanged," he said replying to a question about possible participation of the CSTO in the operations in Syria. "The issue is not in our agenda," Semerikov said, adding, "There is no plan to set up a coalition for Syria in the CSTO format. Russia certainly copes with the tasks there."
The CSTO deputy chief gave no details regarding Syria’s bid to join the Organization. "I have no such information," he said, adding, "CSTO Council will considers such a document if the organization receives a bid from Syria."
"The CSTO charter underlines that the organization is open for everyone who agrees with the Charter, the Treaty and shares our views," he reaffirmed.
