CSTO tightens foreign base norms

Russia has won the right to veto the establishment of new foreign military bases in the member states of the Collective Security Treaty Organisation (CSTO). At their summit in Moscow the leaders of the CSTO agreed that the deployment of foreign bases in their territory is only possible with the approval of all partners of the defence alliance. In order to deploy military bases of a third country in the territory of the CSTO member-states, it is necessary to obtain the official constant of all its members”, said Kazathstan’s President Nursultan Nazarbayev. Kazakhstan took over the rotating presidency of the CSTO from Belarus. The defence bloc of former Soviet States also includes Armenia, Kyrgyzstan, Russia, Tajikistan and Uzbekistan.
