YEREVAN, June 10. /TASS/. Participants of the meeting of the CSTO Council of Foreign Ministers adopted a document reaffirming the commitment to the principle of indivisibility of security, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said on Friday at a press conference following the CSTO Council of Foreign Ministers meeting.
"We adopted a document on international security issues, which for the first time within the CSTO enshrines the principle of indivisibility of security, the need to ensure equal and indivisible security, when no country will strengthen its security at the expense of the security of any other country," he said.
The Russian Foreign Minister recalled that the principle of indivisibility of security "was declared as a political obligation within the OSCE quite a long time ago, but Western colleagues categorically refused to implement it and demanded legal security guarantees exclusively within the NATO framework."
"We have confirmed today our commitment to this principle not only in the OSCE area, but also in the development of the entire international situation, especially since the relevance of asserting the indivisibility of security is now evident in the Indo-Pacific region," Lavrov pointed out, "As you know, our Chinese partners, our strategic partners, stress the need to apply the principle of the indivisibility of security on a global scale, in a global context".
