Unacceptable that some CSTO members do not defend their allies on international platform-Sharmazanov
The head of the Armenian delegation to the Parliamentary Assembly of the Collective Security Treaty Eduard Sharmazanov has delivered a speech at the Parliamentary Assembly of CSTO, the press service of the National Assembly reports.
Sharmazanov has in particular said:
"Dear colleagues, the republic of Armenia in 2015 took CSTO chairmanship and Armenia’s main priorities were presented by the president.
I appreciate greatly that the CSTO members constantly demonstrate balanced approach and not to make statements which do not stem not only from CSTO members’ interests but also from CSTO’s interests.
Unfortunately we sometimes face cases when some members do not defend their allies as well as contradict CSTO’s stances.
This is unacceptable we must do our best to prevent such negative phenomena in the future.
I would like to refer to terrorism, racism and xenophobia manifestations.
I think this is a challenge not only to the CSTO but also the whole of humanity. I call for saying a decisive ‘NO’ to such negative phenomena without exception.
