The decision to transform the CST into an organization was correct
The decision to transform the Collective Security Treaty (CST) into an organization was correct, a source in the Kremlin has told RIA Novosti."Experience shows that the decision made by the six member countries in 2002 to transform the CST, which was concluded on May 15, 1992, into a fully-fledged international regional organization was correct," the source said. Russia, Belarus, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan and Armenia are current members of the Collective Security Treaty Organization (CSTO). On the eve of the CSTO summit, he said, "The foundation of the CSTO on established international principles and in accordance with the UN Charter became a serious step on the way to developing integration in the military-political sphere." According to the source, the CSTO "continues to position itself as an important element of the global security system, which plays a stabilizing role in the CSTO zone of responsibility." He also said he believed that it was important that the CSTO was not a closed organization. "We plan to invite other countries to participate in CSTO activities as observers, and also foresee the admission of new members in the future," the source added. The presidents of Armenia, Belarus, Kazakhstan, Tajikistan, and Russia, and the acting president of Kyrgyzstan will attend a regular session of the CSTO Council in Moscow today.
