MINSK, 12 November (BelTA) - Belarus has three candidates for a CSTO secretary general's position, Belarus President Alexander Lukashenko said as he met with Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of Azerbaijan to Belarus Latif Gandilov on 12 November, BelTA has learned.
Speaking about the candidates, the president said that the rotation follows the alphabetical order of the names of the CSTO member states, so Belarus comes after Armenia. “Right now I have three candidates for the CSTO secretary general's position,” the head of state said.
The Belarusian leader did not understand why there were so many speculations and rumors about the appointment of the new secretary general because the foreign policy situation around the CSTO countries had been the main issue on the agenda.
