CSTO Secretary General will fly to Kazakhstan on January 11

CSTO Secretary General Stanislav Zas said that he will fly to Kazakhstan on January 11, RIA Novosti reports.

He noted that the purpose of the trip is to study the state of affairs on the spot and to meet with the leadership of the Republic of Kazakhstan.

“In agreement with the President of Kazakhstan, the Chairman of the CSC, I will fly to Kazakhstan tomorrow,” Zas said at an extraordinary session of the Collective Security Council.

On Monday, the leaders of the CSTO countries are holding an extraordinary videoconference on the situation in Kazakhstan, where riots have recently been observed. During the talks, Kassym-Jomart Tokayev thanked the heads of the Russian Federation and Belarus, Vladimir Putin and Alexander Lukashenko for their help and military brotherhood.

The head of Kazakhstan stated that the threats faced by Kazakhstan are common for the CSTO, therefore it is necessary to strengthen the organization’s potential and increase its responsiveness to crisis situations.

In early January, protests broke out in Kazakhstan, which then escalated into riots. Against this background, Tokayev turned to his CSTO partners for help. On January 6, peacekeepers from the Russian Federation, Belarus, Armenia, Tajikistan and Kyrgyzstan began to arrive in the republic.
