"CSTO countries have to provide a real mechanism for combating terrorism and extremism," CSTO Secretary General Nikolai Bordyuzha said at a meeting of the CSTO Security Council today.
According to him, for the year CSTO has done a great job. It in practice checked the readiness of CSTO air forces within unannounced exercises of the Collective Rapid Reaction Forces. In addition, the organization worked actively to combat drug trafficking. There were totally seized more than 120 tons of drugs, including more than 60 tons of hard drugs.
"CSTO should pay particular attention to the improvement of the developed, we can say, exclusive mechanism of collective security. At the same time we need to provide a real mechanism for combating terrorism and extremism, and complete the creation of the Crisis Response Center of the Collective Security Treaty Organization," Nikolai Bordyuzha said.
