Khachaturov: CSTO should be more active in making decisions in international organizations

Belarus President Alexander Lukashenko met with the ministers of foreign affairs of the member states of the CSTO on July 17.

During the existence of the CSTO, a multifunctional structure has been created with an effective tool for countering international problems. However, one cannot stop at what has been achieved.

Yuri Khachaturov, Secretary General of the Collective Security Treaty Organization:
The CSTO, in our opinion, should be more active during discussions and decision-making in international organizations. Time requires from us a detailed talk about how CSTO member states and our Organization as a whole can strengthen and expand the potential of not only joint reaction to the events in the world, but also the introduction and use of methods of preventive diplomacy, building partnerships to prevent the development of negative and dangerous trends in the international situation.

On the morning of July 17, in honor of the 15th anniversary of the CSTO, a ceremony of introduction of a commemorative envelope was held with the participation of the foreign ministers of the organization. Its design and design were developed in Belarus. The envelope was issued in 30,000 copies.

The Collective Security Treaty Organization (CSTO) groups six states. In 2016-2017 alone, three meetings at the level of heads of state were held. Leaders met in Yerevan, St. Petersburg and Bishkek. In November, Minsk will host the next session of the CSTO Collective Security Council.
