Armenia, as a country holding the rotating chairmanship in the Russian-led Collective Security Treaty Organization (CSTO) will organize January 10 an online meeting of the organization’s Collective Security Council, comprising the heads of Armenia, Belarus, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan and Russia.
The idea to hold the meeting via videoconference was voiced by Kazakh President Kassym-Jomart Tokayev.
The news was announced by Armenian Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan after his conversation with Russian and Belarusian Presidents Vladimir Putin and Alexander Lukashenko last weekend, the Kremlin’s press service reported.
During the phone conversations, Putin, Lukashenko and Pashinyan discussed the current situation in Kazakhstan, which is said to be tending towards normalization after a week of protests and clashes resulting in the deaths of dozens of civilians and police.
