MOSCOW. Sept 4 (Interfax) - Belarus is ready to contribute to the development and strengthening of the Collective Security Treaty Organization (CSTO), Belarusian President Alexander Lukashenko said.
"We confirm our commitments to bolster unity in the CSTO," Lukashenko said at a meeting with CSTO Secretary General Nikolai Bordyuzha on Tuesday in Minsk.
Belarus has done a lot within the framework of its presidency in the CSTO, the president said. "Of course, we have certain problems as does the CIS," Lukashenko said, pointing out that the problems concern delays in ratifying the documents adopted in the CSTO.
"I think we will be able to do a lot by October 6 [meeting of CSTO leaders in Dushanbe], and what we fail to do will be considered in Dushanbe," the president said.
The CSTO bring together Armenia, Belarus, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Russia, Tajikistan and Uzbekistan.
