Meeting of the CSTO Collective Security Council begins 23.11.2023

A meeting of the heads of the Collective Security Treaty Organization member states under the chairmanship of the President of the Republic of Belarus Alexander Lukashenko has begun in Minsk in the narrow format.

Greeting his colleagues, Alexander Lukashenko said: "The year has been rapid in terms of the geopolitical situation development. Accordingly, the schedule of our work has been tight. Starting from spring, Belarus has been hosting almost monthly CSTO events: The Council of the Parliamentary Assembly, then intersessional meetings of the statutory bodies at the ministerial level, coordination meetings of the leadership of the relevant state bodies of the CSTO member states to counter transnational threats, such as drug trafficking, illegal migration, emergencies, challenges in the sphere of biological security, cyber security”.

Speaking about the implementation of Belarus' priorities over the past period, Alexander Lukashenko said: "On the domestic front, we sought to enhance the cohesion of the CSTO member states in order to strengthen the Organization itself and ensure security and stability in the area of responsibility. On the external level, our goal was to strengthen the role and significance of the Organization in the system of international relations. Today we can state that the goals set by the Republic of Belarus last November have been achieved on the whole”.

"Undoubtedly, the results of the work are a collective success, the merit of all of us - the parties to the Treaty. We would not have been able to realize what we had planned without the support of our friends and partners for the priorities of the Belarusian Chairmanship," the President stressed.

A plenary session will take place after the conclusion of the meeting in the narrow format.
