MINSK, 22 June (BelTA) – Genuine threats to national security, to the individual, the society, and the state remain topical. Secretary General of the Collective Security Treaty Organization (CSTO) Stanislav Zas made the statement as the international security industry expo National Security. Belarus 2022 opened on 22 June, BelTA has learned.
Stanislav Zas said: “In my opinion, it is a very fitting format – a comprehensive expo dedicated to security. It is particularly topical for small countries like Belarus. It is difficult to do that on the scale of Russia. I am convinced this initiative will live and will become a good tradition. Certainly, the attention of many countries is riveted to what is going on to the south of us, in Ukraine. At the same time other genuine threats to national security, to the individual, the society, and the state have not gone away.”
In his opinion, these problems remain topical for countries of the Collective Security Treaty Organization (CSTO), too. “Among them are information threats, terrorist threats, and biological threats. Problems of extremism and drugs trafficking remain acute. When all these matters are addressed by technical accomplishments and R&D products, one should only welcome it. No doubt, all of it will benefit the law enforcement agencies and the special units tasked with minimizing these threats,” Stanislav Zas concluded.
