CSTO will increase its military component - Lukashenko
MOSCOW. Dec 19 (Interfax) - Belarusian President Alexander Lukashenko has called for an increase of the military component of the Collective Security Treaty Organization (CSTO), and his call was backed by all members of CSTO.
"Belarus wants gradual strengthening and improvement of the military potential of our organization. It's a very good time to approve the main areas of military cooperation envisioning the joining of the military components of the Organization to form a unified functioning bloc," Lukashenko said at the meeting of the CSTO Collective Security Council on Wednesday.
"All CSTO members who are present here have definitely backed the draft decision, in which we definitely increase the military component," Lukashenko said.
Lukashenko spoke in favor of increasing military-technical cooperation and the creation of scientific research centers to develop and create new types of weapons. The president also believes "the trainings conducted in CSTO should be focused on real military scenarios."
