The Kulyab airport, Tajikistan, opens for US humanitarian deliveries to Afghanistan, Talbak Nazarov, Tajik Minister of Foreign Affairs, announced after a foreign-ministerial conference of Collective Security Treaty countries. It is not yet a working arrangement but mere understanding, he added. Tajikistan previously opened its frontiers for US air transits. American aircraft can use Tajik airports for emergency landings and other necessities.
Near the United Nations Glass Palace in New York, there is a metallic sculpture entitled "Evil Defeated by Good", representing Saint George transfixing a dragon with his lance. It was donated by the USSR in 1990 to celebrate the INF Treaty concluded with the USA in 1987
