The CSTO Secretary General Imangali Tasmagambetov's commentary 07.06.2024

In an exclusive commentary to Cronos.Asia, the CSTO Secretary General Imangali Tasmagambetov spoke about the progress of the negotiations.

On Thursday, June 6, 2024, a meeting of the Committee of Secretaries of the CSTO Security Councils was held in Almaty under the chairmanship of Kazakhstan. The meeting participants discussed the military and political situation in the CSTO area of responsibility and measures to improve the activities and cooperation in the Organization's format in countering challenges and threats to CSTO member states. In comments to Cronos.Asia, the CSTO Secretary General Imangali Tasmagambetov said that special attention was paid to the draft “CSTO Targeted Interstate Program on Strengthening the Tajik-Afghan Border”.


- Imangali Nurgaliyevich, during the discussion, what was the most difficult issue in your opinion?

- The negotiations themselves were not difficult. What was difficult was the issue of the CSTO Targeted Interstate Program, which was initiated in 2013 and was not implemented for 10-11 years due to objective reasons. But despite the general geopolitical situation in the zone of responsibility of our Organization, both at the Council of Defense Ministers and with the Secretaries of the Security Council we were able to make a decision for the Collective Security Council to finally sign this program.

- And the fact that Armenia was not present?

- The Armenian side stated even before the meeting that it had no objection to the adoption of decisions in a limited format.
