Lukashenko invites CSTO leaders to meet in extended format
The CSTO leaders should hold an extended participation meeting to discuss topical issues of security, response to modern challenges and threats, Belarus President Aleksandr Lukashenko said at the session of the CSTO Collective Security Council on 2 December, BelTA has learned.
The head of state praised the fact that the CSTO leaders are holding an online meeting on 2 December. “But the situation shows that we must have a meeting taking into account the lessons of the recent events to discuss the prospects of our actions, to prevent things like that in all countries,” the president said. “There is no room for wishful thinking in this situation. Probably, all of us understand that. Therefore, I suggest that we should find time for an extended meeting with the participation of not only the CSTO members, not even of partners, like the president of Russia was saying here, but also with the participation of friendly countries that feel the danger which we are facing today.”
