CSTO Member States agree to enhance border security of Tajikistan

The parties expressed concern about the rapid deterioration of the security situation in Afghanistan during a session.

On August 23, President of the Republic of Tajikistan Emomali Rahmon chaired an extraordinary session of the CSTO Collective Security Council on the security situation in Afghanistan and its impact on security of the CSTO Member States, the press office of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Tajikistan reported.

The parties noted that the situation in Afghanistan was getting worse due to the rise of insurgency of foreign terrorist organisations in the country.

In this regard, Rahmon suggested that the leaders of the CSTO Member States agree to cooperate in strengthening the Tajik-Afghan border.

The Russian side expressed readiness to provide arms weapons and equipment to the CSTO Member States bordering Afghanistan.

With the view to strengthening the borders with Afghanistan, Russia could provide arms at lower prices.
