On September 20, the foreign ministers of the CSTO countries held their traditional working meeting in New York, where they exchange opinions on the priority issues on the agenda of the 72nd session of the UN General Assembly and major areas of cooperation between the CSTO and the UN, primarily, counterterrorism, regional security, and peacemaking missions.

The foreign ministers of the allied states adopted three joint statements: “Countering International Terrorism,” “Ensuring Comprehensive Stability in the World,” and “The Situation in Afghanistan and the Threat Posed by the Growing Strength of International Terrorist and Extremist Organisations in its Northern Provinces.”

CSTO Secretary General Yury Khachaturov informed the ministers about the preparations for the session of the CSTO Collective Security Council due to take place in Minsk in late November.

The ministers agreed to continue coordinating their positions on foreign policy matters in accordance with the CSTO Collective Security Strategy until 2025.
