During the first part of the CSTO Council held in a smaller membership, the heads of state held a thorough exchange of views on the CSTO's activities and the ensuring of international and regional security. Mutual understanding has been reached in all agenda issues, BNews.kz correspondent reports.
"Among the decisions taken, I would like to note that the CSTO's partner and observer at the Organization statuses are established. This step promotes openness of our state, readiness to develop constructive relations with other states and international organizations on a mutual basis. Taking this opportunity, on behalf of the CSTO, I invite interested sides to thoroughly study our regulatory framework on obtaining partner and observer statuses," said the head of state during the CSTO session.
The Collective Security Council includes the CSTO member states: Armenia, Belarus, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Russia, and Tajikistan. Currently, the Organization is chaired by Kazakhstan.
It is expected that an Action Plan to develop a coordinated information policy in the interest of the CSTO member state and a Plan for development of a collective system against illicit migration until 2025 will be concluded.
