Russian President Vladimir Putin arrived Monday in Dushanbe, Tajikistan to attend another session of the Collective Security Treaty Organisation (CSTO).
According to the Kremlin, the discussion at the CSTO summit will focus on the main areas of allied cooperation and ways of enhancing it. Special attention will be given to ensuring an effective response to the most pressing military and political challenges, including the increased activity of terrorist and extremist groups and destabilization of the situation near CSTO borders.
Within this context, the heads of CSTO member states will consider, among other things, the results of the CSTO states’ armed forces exercises and joint events organized by law enforcement agencies, the Kremlin said.
Putin will also have a separate meeting with Tajikistan President Emomali Rahmon and a number of other bilateral contacts.
