Dear Alexander Grigorievich, Please accept my most sincere and warm congratulations on your election as the President of the Republic of Belarus. Behind your victory is the authority that you have earned over many years of work at the head of the Republic of Belarus, the talent of a motivated and effective political leader. The Republic of Belarus makes a significant contribution to the activities of the Collective Security Treaty Organization and consistently comes up with initiatives aimed at increasing the efficiency of its activities. The attention and support that you personally provide to the CSTO, your role in making it more dynamic and increasing its international authority are invaluable. Dear Alexander Grigorievich, I wish you with all my heart, good health and new successes in your work at the highest government post.

The CSTO Secretariat expresses serious concern over the aggravation of the situation on the Armenian-Azerbaijani border that arose on July 12, this year, after an armed conflict between units of the armed forces of the Republic of Armenia and the Republic of Azerbaijan, including the use of heavy armament, which resulted in the dead and the injured. The current situation does not contribute to the normalization of the situation on the border of the two neighboring states, one of which is the Republic of Armenia. The Republic is a member state of the Collective Security Treaty Organization. The situation indicates a violation of the agreements of ceasefire reached at the leadership level of the Republic of Armenia and the Republic of Azerbaijan.



On July 9, 2020, the CSTO Secretariat hosted the first meeting of the Working Group on the Development of a Concept of Cooperation of the CSTO Member States on Countering Modern Combined Forms of Destructive Impact on the CSTO Member States. The CSTO Secretary General Stanislav Zas took part in the meeting.
