Russia prioritizes relations with former Soviet bloc of countries

Moscow, May 15 (Prensa Latina) The Russian Foreign Ministry highlighted as a priority of its foreign policy the expansion and strengthening of cooperation with the member States of the Collective Security Treaty Organization (CSTO).

The Foreign Ministry statement stressed the 30th anniversary of the signing of the treaty that made possible the creation of the military bloc comprising a group of former Soviet countries(Armenia, Belarus, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Russia and Tajikistan), which will be celebrated during the summit of heads of state and government of the group to be held on May 16 in Moscow.

He meant that the CSTO achieved a lot in a relatively short period by historical standards.

“Thanks to the joint efforts of member states, a coherent and effective structure was created for jointly addressing security-related issues and promoting collective interests on the world stage,” the text noted.

According to Moscow, the CSTO today plays a key role in maintaining regional stability and reliably ensures security in its area of responsibility, which encompasses the territories of its member countries.

As one of the organization’s successes, Russia cited the operation of CSTO peacekeepers in Kazakhstan at the request of the authorities of that Central Asian nation to stabilize the internal political situation, which was considered by its top leadership as proof of the organization’s maturity.
