RIA Novosti News Agency: The CSTO is concerned about the deployment of missile defense elements near the borders of its member countries18.07.2019
VIENNA, July17 – RIA Novosti News Agency. The Collective Security Treaty Organization is concerned about the deployment of military groups and the deployment of missile defense elements in the immediate vicinity of the member state borders, the CSTO Acting Secretary General Valery Semerikov said on Wednesday, July 17, at a meeting of the OSCE Forum for Security Cooperation .
"Unfortunately, it is necessary to note with concern that with the further growth of global instability, the military-political situation in the OSCE region continues to evolve in a negative scenario. We cannot be concerned about the fact that in the immediate vicinity of the borders of the CSTO member states the deployment of shock military groups is being carried out, the deployment of elements of a strategic missile defense system continues, " Semerikov said.
He noted that the situation is aggravated in connection with initiatives to avoid the Treaty on the elimination of Medium and Short-range missiles. According to him, this leads to the termination of an important factor in maintaining international security and stability and leads to an arms race, in the process of which many regional powers of Eurasia can engage. “And this is a direct road to armed polycentricity, including in the Asian region,” he added.
