Lukashenko: CSTO will be heard if we jointly come out with peaceful and fair agenda in the region

The Collective Security Treaty Organisation will be heard if its members will unite to jointly present a peaceful and fair agenda in the Eurasian region – as noted by the President of Belarus, Aleksandr Lukashenko, during his today’s meeting with the secretaries of the Security Councils of the CSTO member states


The Head of State stressed, “If they want, we will attract the SCO and BRICS to this process. Actually, many countries are members of both organisations. Belarus – as the CSTO chairing state – is ready to make every effort to strengthen our organisation and collective security in its area of responsibility. If any of you need to use our chairmanship to convey to the heads of state and discuss the most important issues of our security, then use it. We are ready for that. It is necessary to understand that our folk wisdom says: one cannot conquer alone. Only unity makes us stronger. I am sure that the motto of the Belarusian chairmanship – Through Solidarity and Co-operation to Peace and Security – meets the interests of all our states, and not only ours.”

Aleksandr Lukashenko concluded: Belarus is ready to share all the information it receives and possesses with other CSTO countries. “We are at a crossroads – from the West and the East, from the North and the South. It so happened that we are boiling here. We are always open,” he stressed.
