Belarus to host CSTO PA Council meeting in May

MINSK, 24 January (BelTA) – An on-site meeting of the CSTO PA Council will be held in Belarus on 18 May, Chairman of the Standing Commission on National Security of the House of Representatives Oleg Belokonev told reporters on the sidelines of a meeting of the Council of the House of Representatives, BelTA has learned.

"In 2023, the Republic of Belarus assumed the chairmanship in the Collective Security Treaty Organization. Therefore, the country will host a number of key, especially important events. One of such events is the on-site meeting of the Parliamentary Assembly of the Collective Security Treaty Organization, which is scheduled for 18 May," Oleg Belokonev said. “This event will bring together members of the Council of the CSTO Parliamentary Assembly. We will exchange views, raise the level of inter-parliamentary cooperation, coordinate the positions in the international arena, and discuss some issues that may arise by that time and the legal aspects of the collective security of the CSTO member states.”

According to him, parliamentary cooperation is a fairly effective mechanism in promoting cooperation between the CSTO member states. "We meet regularly, discuss various issues. The CSTO Parliamentary Assembly runs commissions. There is a military dimension that the joint staff of the organization is in charge of. There is an inter-parliamentary dimension that the Parliamentary Assembly of this organization is responsible for. The key aspects are intertwined - military, international, and political. Therefore, one of the key issues is information security today," the MP added.
