A session of the Council of the Collective Security Treaty Organisation that is being held in Moscow will give a powerful impetus to the development of the whole collective security system, the CSTO Secretariat press service told BelTA referring to CSTO Secretary General Nikolai Bordiuzha.
Among the most important issues on the agenda Nikolai Bordiuzha singled out the analysis of the military and political situation in the CSTO zone of responsibility and adjacent regions in general and in South Ossetia in particular. "The situation is not changing for the better, unfortunately," Nikolai Bordiuzha said.
The heads of state will also consider the document on the creation of the personnel training system for law-enforcement bodies, fire, emergencies and special services of the CSTO member states, on making the Canal anti-drug operation a permanent project, a plan of joint action of the member states to the UN global anti-terrorist strategy for 2008-2012, the document on financing the interstate target programmes.
The last document will help commence a whole set of interstate projects in military and military-technical cooperation, anti-terrorist and anti-drug activity, information security, Nikolai Bordiuzha informed.
Speaking about the CSTO development prospects, Nikolai Bordiuzha said that the session of the CSTO councils of ministers of defences, foreign affairs, and the committee of secretaries of security councils noted the necessity to step up the activity in developing the collective security system.
"The chiefs of the military and foreign departments, secretaries of the security councils were unanimous that the security of the state can be ensured by joint efforts only," Nikolai Bordiuzha emphasised.
