CSTO will support Armenia if necessary, says Chief of the Joint Staff Colonel General Anatoly Sidorov


YEREVAN, FEBRUARY 14, ARTSAKHPRESS. The Collective Security Treaty Organization (CSTO) member states will be ready to support Armenia if necessary, CSTO Chief of the Joint Staff Colonel General Anatoly Sidorov said at a press conference.

Sidorov made the remarks when asked whether or not Armenia’s decision to cancel the CSTO exercises in its territory would impact the work of the organization.

“If the situation were to require the involvement of the collective security system’s forces and measures in the Caucasian region…..there’s experience, some plans were also developed, and I think that the CSTO member countries would be ready to back their ally up in the Caucasian region,” TASS quoted the CSTO Chief of the Joint Staff as saying.
