CSTO set to react to use of force in Nagorno-Karabakh

The post-Soviet security organization, CSTO, will react to any actions causing escalation of tension at the border between Azerbaijan and Armenia, as well as in Nagorno-Karabakh, the organization's head Nikolai Borduzha said on Friday, TASS reports.

“The Organization has been reacting to any actions of the kind [use of military force] that affect security in the region,” he said.

At the same time, he continued, the organization is not involved in settlement of that conflict.

“We only monitor the situation, as it involves our ally – Armenia,” the official said. “CSTO’s position is quite strait – all participating countries want to have the conflict settled by only political means.”

“All countries are against escalation of the tension at the border between Armenia and Azerbaijan, against use of heavy weapons,” he added.
