Lukashenko on Armenia absence at CSTO summit: Issues should be resolved at negotiating table
The dissatisfaction of one of the members of the CSTO Collective Security Council was discussed at the CSTO summit. This was announced by the President of Belarus, Aleksandr Lukashenko, at Thursday’s narrow-format meeting of the CSTO Collective Security Council in Belarusian capital Minsk—and referring to the absence of Armenia at the CSTO summit. "We discussed as well the situation in the Caucasus, and some grievances of one of the members of the Collective Security Council. We have come to the conclusion that there have always been and will be problematic issues; and if we intend to solve them, then they should be solved at the negotiating table, not making groundless demarches," said the president of Belarus.
