On March 10 this year, in Bishkek, the President of the Kyrgyz Republic Sadyr Japarov received the CSTO Secretary General Imangali Tasmagambetov.

Having congratulated Imangali Tasmagambetov on assuming his new position, Sadyr Japarov expressed confidence that he would use his life and professional experience with full dedication in implementing the goals and objectives of the Organization for the benefit of strengthening regional and international security.

I. Tasmagambetov thanked the President of the Kyrgyz Republic for supporting his candidacy for the post of the CSTO Secretary General at the November (2022) session of the Collective Security Council and reported on the priorities of the Collective Security Treaty Organization set for 2023.

"The action plan to implement the decisions of the CSTO CSC has been approved by the presidency, the President of the Republic of Belarus Alexander Lukashenko. We have begun its implementation. It reflects practically all the areas of competence of our Organization and the priorities of the presidency," the CSTO Secretary General said.

Sadyr Japarov noted that the Kyrgyz Republic attached great importance to cooperation within the CSTO as a guarantor of security in the region. In order to coordinate military, informational and humanitarian measures, the Kyrgyz Republic planned to hold trainings with the CSTO Peacekeeping Forces "Indestructible Brotherhood-2023" on its territory this year.

"As we know, there remains a risk of international terrorists, who have gained combat and sabotage experience in hot spots, moving around the world to recruit citizens and carry out terrorist acts. Our countries are no exception in this regard. In this regard, it is necessary to strengthen the relevant work on timely response and prevention of possible destructive manifestations. For its part, the Kyrgyz Republic is taking appropriate measures to ensure the security and stability of the country," the President of the Kyrgyz Republic said. He emphasized the need to develop partnership cooperation between the CSTO and international organizations such as the SCO, the CIS, the UN and others.

"Kyrgyzstan is interested in enhancing the role and authority of the CSTO. The Organization has great opportunities to create conditions for ensuring the national security of the CSTO member states," Sadyr Japarov stressed.

The President of the Kyrgyz Republic noted the importance of joint efforts to consistently strengthen the development of regional cooperation in all aspects of the CSTO's competence, and to enhance its potential as a military and political international organization capable of responding promptly to security challenges and threats.
