Zas suggests extending term of office of CSTO chief

MINSK, 1 November (BelTA) – The term of office of the CSTO secretary general should be extended in the future, CSTO Secretary General Stanislav Zas said as he met with Belarusian President Aleksandr Lukashenko, BelTA has learned.

“Aren't you staying too long in Moscow?” the head of state asked jokingly.

“No. By the way, it's not about me. I believe that a three-year term for the secretary general is a short period. It is something to think about in the future. In fact, there are a lot of things to do, and it takes time to get a handle on everything and begin to feel confident in your new role. And time flies by very quickly. And three years is, of course... [not enough]”, Stanislav Zas replied.

“Well, we will discuss this at the next meeting. It's good that you have raised this issue,” Aleksandr Lukashenko responded.
