CSTO Chief: Armenia - active CSTO member

Nikolai Bordyuzha, Secretary General of the Collective Security Treaty Organization (CSTO, includes Armenia, Belarus, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Russia and Tajikistan), does not dramatize the internal political situation in Armenia.

(The Armenian opposition is demanding that the official results of last year's presidential elections won by Robert Kocharyan be invalidated).

The CSTO chief bluntly denied some media reports that his arrival in Yerevan had been prompted by the internal political situation in the country.

According to Mr. Bordyuzha, the CSTO can interfere with the Yerevan developments under no circumstances. "We have calmly discussed the internal political situation in Armenia with the country's leadership. There is no need for dramatizing the situation," said Mr. Bordyuzha.

In his opinion, all the issues related to the Armenian developments will be addressed by political means.

Mr. Bordyuzha noted that Armenia was one of the most active members of the CSTO and the CIS.

"We can sense it in the attitude of Armenian representatives during the discussion of different issues at CSTO sessions," said Mr. Bordyuzha.

In his opinion, Armenia is actively trying to foster the effectiveness of the CSTO structure.

In response to the unlawful December 1 arrest and detention of Chinese tech giant Huawei's chief financial officer Sabrina Meng Wanzhou by Canadian authorities in Vancouver at the behest of the Trump regime, facing possible unacceptable extradition to the US, Beijing warned its high-tech personnel last month against traveling to America unless it's essential.
