Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov’s opening remarks at the talks with CSTO Secretary General Yury Khachaturov, Moscow, September 12, 2017
Good afternoon, Mr Khachaturov.
I am happy to have this opportunity to exchange opinions on the development of our interaction within the framework of the Collective Security Treaty Organisation (CSTO). The CSTO Secretary General and his team provide the necessary conditions for the smooth operation of the CSTO Secretariat based on the decisions made by the heads of state and at meetings of the Council of Foreign Ministers, Security Council Secretaries and Defence Ministers.
Your assessments are very important to us.
Once again, welcome to Moscow.
