MINSK, 8 June (BelTA) – State Secretary of the Security Council of Belarus Aleksandr Volfovich named the measures to ensure security in the CSTO countries as he spoke to the media after the meeting of the Committee of the Secretaries of CSTO Security Councils in Minsk on 8 June, BelTA has learned.

“The meeting considered a number of important areas to improve the CSTO activities. First of all, we are talking about the development of measures to ensure security within the organization. About nine documents were considered at the meeting. They included the provision on the regional anti-terrorist operation Mercenary, as well as the approval of the provision on reserve supplies. The participants of the meeting provided a clear and brief analysis of the military and political situation in the CSTO area. The heads of the delegations took note of the challenges and threats that existed in the particular region. In order to neutralize them and ensure security a set of appropriate measures has been proposed,” Aleksandr Volfovich said.

According to the state secretary of the Security Council, the heads of the CSTO Security Councils met with the Belarusian president ahead of the meeting. “Aleksandr Lukashenko gave a brief analysis of the situation, primarily in the Eastern European region of collective security, where Belarus is located. Challenges threatening security on the Eurasian continent were also mentioned. Certain wishes were expressed and new tasks were set. It was noted that the potential of the Committee of the Secretaries of the CIS Security Councils is still hugely untapped. The task was given to us to focus on a more dynamic and coordinated work,” he added.

“The president said that unilateral sanctions against individual nations threaten the whole of collective security,” Aleksandr Volfovich said. “We need to work out joint measures against these sanctions, which will ensure security in our countries. A task was also set to start work on a new concept of collective security, designed for the period of up to 2035. This will help strengthen peace and security in our countries.”
