MINSK, 28 October (BelTA) – The participants of the CSTO summit discussed a potential response to the developments on the Armenia-Azerbaijan border, Belarus' Deputy Minister of Foreign Affairs Yuri Ambrazevich told reporters following the extraordinary session of the CSTO Collective Security Council. Taking part in the session was Belarusian President Aleksandr Lukashenko, BelTA has learned.
“The participants of this summit had a very earnest and candid discussion of the findings of the monitoring mission led by the CSTO secretary general that was deployed in the Armenia-Azerbaijan border area. Most importantly, the parties were able to discuss a prospective reaction of our organization to these issues. There is a certain vision on how to proceed with this matter in the next few weeks. As far as we know, a trilateral meeting of Armenia, Azerbaijan and the Russian Federation will take place one of these days [it is expected to be held in Sochi on 31 October at the initiative of Russia]. The parties came to an agreement that the issue will be further discussed at the regular session of the CSTO Collective Security Council at the end of November,” Yuri Ambrazevich said.
