Collective Security Treaty Organization

The Treaty of Collective Security was signed in 1992. Its principal goal was to guarantee the security, stability, territorial integrity, and sovereignty of the parties involved in this treaty.

The efforts of this treaty were to develop the Organization and adapt it to the present geopolitical scenario to enable the signatories for military-political cooperation and to establish an effective system of collective security and threat countermeasures.

At the Collective Security Council session in Moscow on May 14, 2002, it determined to combine the CST member states.

Hence it reorganized the structure and cooperation into an international regional organization “the Collective Security Treaty Organization” with appropriate status.

The members reaffirmed during the meeting that any attempt to misrepresent historical events connected to the joint role in countering Nazi aggression was strongly condemned.

The members vowed to continue to fight any efforts to glorify Nazism and disseminate neo-Nazism, as well as bigotry and xenophobia, as a group. They also paid tribute to those who perished during the Great Patriotic War.

In addition, the members affirmed that the Organization will consistently ensure the security, sovereignty, and territorial integrity of its member states.

It will also work to strengthen global and regional security and a just resolution of international disputes based on universally recognized international law norms and principles.
